Senior Art Critic for New York magazine

We’re honored to welcome Jerry Saltz, Senior Art Critic for New Yorkmagazine, for our first Talks of the year!

As an art critic, Saltz writes about the constantly shifting dynamics of the art world. Hailed as a “critic of the people” by Architectural Digest, he democratizes art for a broad audience through his irreverent column and his social media channels. In 2018, he won the Pulitzer Prize in Criticism for “My Life as a Failed Artist,” an essay about how his disappointing career as an artist is responsible for his success as a critic.

Saltz’s viral New York cover story, “How to Be an Artist,” sold nearly 400,000 print editions of the magazine and gained over 250,000 readers online, ultimately earning a National Magazine Award. In this daring to-do list for aspiring creatives, Saltz shared answers to the questions artists ask the most: “How do I get started? How do I get better? And is this even art at all?”

In his entertaining lectures, Saltz dispenses valuable advice for amateurs and professionals alike, along with a sharp analysis of criticism’s role in today’s art world. He has been a guest lecturer at the Museum of Modern Art, the Guggenheim, the Whitney Museum, and many others.

If you would like a copy of Jerry’s most recent book, “Art Is Life: Icons and Iconoclasts, Visionaries and Vigilantes, and Flashes of Hope in the Night,” we will have them available for purchase on-site.

Seating will be available on a first-come, first-served basis, so make sure you RSVP below and arrive early.
