This week, I have come across two essays slamming John Currin. These are the first critical pieces I have read about his current show, and I am just glad that I am not alone in my dislike. I have been feeling a bit like a spoilsport talking to people about John Currin since no one seems to have so hostile a reaction to his show. First, there was Jerry Saltz. And then there was Jed Pearl, who is hyperbolic to say the least. Only a week left to go though, then show will be over, then my anger will have to move on to new subjects.
