As much as I respect Jerry Saltz that article was on the light side. Books have been written on this subject. Saltz ending in particular was lame. And I agree with you -- he often like Gary Michael Dault seems to appreciate some work more than others, and then feels the need to justify the bias rather than simply acknowledge it. The worst political artist I know of, since we're on the subject: Leon Golub. (That is assuming Kiki Smith is not political.) Let's face it, art is creating things for a cognoscenti, a rich class, it's luxury, it's fun, its amusement. Get over it. Create. Even Animal Farm for all its political content didn't do a whit to change the world.

Did Animal Farm change the world for YOU, though?
