Jonathan Jones goes into reverse! 27.10.09
Now they are all saying what I have been saying for two years – that Hirst is not a good artist, probably never was, and that the entire lexicon of principles and values of contemporary art – the readymade, seriality, machine production – have been debased and bastardised by a generation of indulgent and indulged, over-priced auction-artists. Just had to link to this – the Guardian’s imbecilic art critic, Jonathan Jones, has done a 180 on Damien Hirst. In 2007, he called his show ‘The birth of 21st Century Art”, now he calls him “a tiny talent.” How about an apology, Jonathan????
