Revolving Door: Saltz’s First Day at New York


Big day yesterday in the world of art criticism. If you hadn’t read earlier in the year, there was a massive sea change in the NY art world as Jerry Saltz, the famous critic and nominee of numerous Pulitzers, took his leave from the Village Voice and headed over to New York magazine. Now that he’s there, yesterday marked the launch of the online copy of their April 23rd issue, wherein Saltz has his first review. And what did he chose? Well, when you’re a big story in the NY art world yourself, the obvious choice is to review The National Academy’s “High Times, Hard Times: New York Painting, 1967-1975.” If you want to read more about what’s gone down the past couple of months, here’s a link to the original story about him leaving the Village Voice from the Media Mob site.
