Look, Ai Weiwei's been through hell. But that doesn't mean he needs to put the rest of us through it. And yet, here we are — "Dumbass" has arrived. In terms of metal, Ai Weiwei, in one song, has become the Billy Ray Cyrus of the genre. Billy Ray is about as country as Pat Boone was heavy metal.

And, certainly, there is no small irony in critiquing the creative numbness of the art market with pieces that will be sold on that very same market.

Dissing the Stedelijk Museum’s new Mels Crouwel–designed wing, New York Times critic Michael Kimmelman off-handedly compared the building to a “ridiculous” bathroom tub that suggested to him the sensation of “hearing Bach played by a...Show More Summary
Despite my longtime interest in New York art from the 1970s, I somehow never imagined delving into an artistic process called, quite literally, "rectal realism." However, last week, I found myself in a small room at the Gershwin Hotel...Show More Summary
