when art critics attack

I’ve tried my hand at art crit this evening over on Wellingtonista.

I must be doing OK – just look at the words I managed to squeeze in:

  • “hyperreal”
  • “naïve”
  • “ironic”
  • “chimæric”

But I’m thinking I’ve missed an opportunity to go all out po-mo and start randomly inserting impressive words like:

  • “context”
  • “situated”
  • “praxis” (what does that mean, BTW?)
  • “gaze”
  • “heterogeneity”
  • “texts”
  • “deconstruct”
  • “hegemonic”

But I’ve forgotten how to do it. Probably just as well, really.
