overhaul / undertow

Wednesday, May 19, 2004

I think I'm getting the hang of this art-criticism thingy.

Mat Gleason has employed me off and on to date, writing essays on various and sundry gallery exhibitions. I've always felt unsuited for such work. I majored in art history at ucla but specialized in what approximates to medieval islamic art. I didn't take a single class in modern and contemporary art.

I feel like an artsy poser. A poseur.

But as I've done more and more, I've begun to feel more knowlegeable about it, to the point that now the artscene emails I get can be culled for what is "good" and what is "not".

Which is nice.
