“The art world is an all-volunteer army, and we all come here naked,” says Jerry Saltz, who has made a life—and won a Pulitzer—as an art critic. Saltz—winner of the 2018 Pulitzer Prize in Criticism and a Chicago native known for his irreverent humor and sweeping, iconoclastic perspective on what the art world can and cannot be, do, and provide—joins us to offer a public intervention about key issues in contemporary visual art, and the increasingly visual, though perhaps not artistic, nature of our world.
