naked brian sewell perched near toilet

Good on Adrian Searle – art critic of the Guardian and long-standing lover of lonely Vietnamese lunches – to come up with a jolly good top ten all-time Frieze articles to kick off that mag’s twentieth birthday celebrations and cheering to see the late great Stuart Morgan in there twice. Modesty stopped the Searlster including himself which is a shame because his magesterial rant about Brian Sewell, penned in 1995, deserves to be read, re-read and then branded to the forehead of the editor of the Evening Standard.

    art critics reviewing art critics. brilliant.

    how is the state of art criticism? flagging? fraught? furtive? fan-dabby-dozy(correct spelling)?

    …fiscal? foetid?


  2. I can’t believe it’s been 20 years. Feels like 200.

    Difficult to choose between the two – one is a cretin who writes for twats who edit a paper for fans of Boris, the other is a cretin who writes for the poxy Evening Standard… I over heard AS saying to Rodney Graham (after a very pointless and boring conversation at the Lisson last year) “I think we got away with it again…” Well you didn’t, it was crap…
