The Critic and Cindy Sherman
April 30, 2012
I’m at the Cindy Sherman opening at Metro Pictures. Jerry Saltz is here too. I know who he is because I’ve read some of his articles. I know what he looks like because of that television show he’s on, the art competition, and even though I haven’t seen it, I have seen a still from the show in which Saltz’s right eyebrow is raised and his head is tipped with critical suggestiveness. At the gallery tonight, he’s having a private conversation when a photographer approaches him to snap a picture. Saltz flashes a quick peace sign and goes right back to his conversation. The move has the whiff of a well-timed cultural ritual, the photographer and Saltz engaged in a smooth, effortless choreography.
