Episode Details

Original tape date: December 4, 2018.

First aired: December 10, 2018.

New York Magazine’s Senior Art Critic Jerry Saltz rarely misses a gallery or museum opening. With a stroke of a pen, he can make or destroy a new artist. Known as the ”people’s critic,” he tells Jim Zirin what he likes, and what he detests about the art world, which he sees as increasingly obsessed with money. But do we need critics to tell us what art is good?
