Title: Artists and Critics
Description: What do artists want from critics? Barbara Zucker answered for us all: "I want them to be my fairy godmother, champion my career, say I'm a genius, and stand behind me unequivocally." Although she and others went on to discuss the importance of dialog and the wonderful insights that artists might derive from criticism of their work, nothing rang as true as these opening remarks. Criticism may be literature, may even be "an art form," as Jeff Perrone insisted, but for artists, criticism is chiefly survival. Good reviews mean sales, jobs, grants, and more shows. Bad reviews or no reviews mean oblivion.
