Example text

The very idea of finding something wrong with the current state of criticism is itself historically determined. Why should October have a roungtable discussion on criticism, a kind of writing it has largely refrained from publishing, in the fall of 2001? Why does a text with the title What Happened to Art Criricism? appear in autumn 2003? It is important to understand why a problem comes to the surface at a given point in time, because we all ride currents of historical thinking of which we're only intermittently aware.

What stand, what position, could permit and orchestrate the lightning-fast changes of stances that comprise contemporary art criticism? Saltz is like a weather vane, spinning around to match the breeze at any given moment, and Fried is like a thermostat, either on or off, with no intermediate setting. Between the two there is a curious and unexplored territory. Clearly, if art criticism is to be reformed by requiring critics to take definite positions, they cannot be the kinds of positions Fried exemplifies because those can't be taken: and if criticism is to go on without positions, it cannot go the way Saltz goes without running into the problem of not having positions.

Saltz's judgments amount to more than just his own opinion, and they do so by sharing common ground with judgments that can be assigned to streams of modernist and postmodernist thinking. " He needs to connect, but not know too much about that connection: not to wony about it, not to get too serious or systematic about it. To keep the edge, stay nimble, and be able to make acute judgments, it is necessary not to think about other people's theories, but when the job is done--in the ninth clause-it is also important that the common ground is evident for those who choose to look.
