Superstar critic Jerry Saltz speaks frankly about the realities of the art market, and gives his advice on how to make successful work and where to go to do it.

“I think that obsession is probably one of the keys to any great artist… but it needs to have more than obsession; it needs to have some sort of insight….I am interested in an artist who creates a machine in their art, and that they can’t predict where this machine is going to spin out.”

Art critic for the New York Times and New York Magazine, Jerry Saltz gives a powerful and informed review of what makes an artist relevant in today’s art market. A judge on one of Bravo TV’s newest television shows, Work of Art: The Next Great Artist, Saltz has easily become one of the most universally recognizable figures in contemporary art criticism.

longtext: Jerry Saltz is the New York Magazine art criic. He has written, “All great contemporary artists, schooled or not, are essentially self-taught and are de-skilling like crazy. I don’t look for skill in art…Skill has nothing to do with technical proficiency… I’m interested in people who rethink skill, who redefine or reimagine it: an engineer, say, who builds rockets from rocks.”   75 minutes
