Description

Deploying the artworks of Warhol, Raphael, Caravaggio, and Mapplethorpe and the writings of Ruskin, Shakespeare, and Foucault, this book takes on museum culture, arid academicism, sclerotic politics, and more.

Reviews

"What art might mean and how it is discussed in a country formed by life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness is his big, compelling question. But he doesn't go at it from afar, from the distant vantage point of theory. Like the best American critics, Hickey sneaks up on the question quick and close." - Sarah Vowell, Salon"
