Brian Droitcour on Yelp art criticism (again).

Choice lines:

In some ways, being a yelper isn’t all that different from being an art critic.

The art critic gets paid so little he may as well be writing for free, like the yelper does.

An art critic who gives Jeff Koons a negative review is like a yelper who gives one star to the Olive Garden. The market has already made up its mind and institutional policy follows.

“Then there’s Warby Parker, as in Warby Parker Presents Beck Song Reader, a sunglasses company whose chunky, bohemian frames look like the kind of things an Upper West Side intellectual might have worn during the 1960s or ’70s. Proceeds from the album go to 826 National, a nationwide nonprofit committed to helping school-aged kids with creative and expository writing, co-founded by Dave Eggers, who, is also the founder of McSweeney’s. At some point describing the project becomes a Russian nesting doll of branding and attribution, brought to you by someone in conjunction with someone else for the benefit of yet someone else. Between Parker, McSweeney’s, Wes Anderson, and the album’s lineup itself, Song Reader crystallizes the maturation of the white indie set to the new ruling class—an arc traced by Beck’s own career. This is a world of people who are mellow, organized, emotive within reason, a little retro and graced with just a zest of modernity.”

“The thing is, photography is such a technology riddled art form, that the ability to take an OK photograph without years and years of training is a relatively easy thing to do, and has been since the 1880s. Though the feeling I get is that when photographers dismiss other photographers by being too snapshotty, it is kind of like them saying “Hey asshole! Don’t you know that we are suppose to have expensive digital cameras, a ton of studio strobes, a big tripod and $2500 lenses to take photographs that grandma literally cannot replicate the look of with her old point & shoot camera from 1987? Quit letting the peasants feel like they can be an artist too without making the same financial investments we have!””

[I love when people get surprised by how elitist art, especially photography, can be. It has always been that way, I’m just surprised we are still letting all this bullshit be the standard.]

1982 advertisement for Blade Runner toys.

The best part is how Deckard’s spinner (which he never drove) has BLADE RUNNER emblazoned on the back. It’s like product placement for the movie inside the movie.
