Jerry Saltz & Roberta Smith in conversation

"Jerry Saltz is the senior critic for New York Magazine. He was formerly the senior art critic for the Village Voice, and has been nominated for the Pulitzer Prize in Criticism three times. Saltz is known for his accessible, candid writing style and his democratic approach to critical dialogue. He has embraced new media and popular culture as a means to connect audiences to art: His Facebook page, which is followed by tens of thousands, has become an outgrowth of his writing for print and a platform for public debate on contemporary art. Together, he and Smith set the tone for art criticism in America today.

Roberta Smith is a critic for the New York Times and a lecturer on contemporary art. Her clear, insightful writing has also appeared in Artforum, Art in America and the Village Voice. In addition, Smith has written numerous essays for catalogues and monographs on contemporary artists, including the featured essay in the Donald Judd catalogue raisonné published by the National Gallery of Canada in 1975. In 2003, the College Art Association awarded Smith the Frank Jewett Mather Award for Art Criticism. She has appeared numerous times on Art Review’s guide to the 100 most powerful figures in contemporary art." [Source]
