Peter Goddard's wonderful review


Peter Goddard continues on his quest to be known as the bestest Art Critic in Canada. Today he tears a strip out of Bruce Mau and the Art Gallery of Ontario. 811 words ripping just about everything in the show (I haven't seen it, so I can't vouch if it is in fact everything... but it sure as shootin' sounds like it).

Some of the highlights:
  • "Here's a room with junk hanging from the ceiling"

  • "Feels like pre-teen spirit to me."

  • "Boy, does it fail and not just visually or aesthetically. It fails intellectually and imaginatively — it's not even much fun"

  • " (On second thought, to call this Grade 8 is an insult to eighth graders everywhere.)"
