Dave Hickey leads group critique for MFA students
Dave Hickey brought his unique brand of art criticism and writing to New Orleans at the invitation of members of The Front, a cooperative gallery on St. Claude Avenue, with support from Tulane University, and Press Street. While in town in mid-March, he led a group critique with Tulane's studio art graduate students. Quotations from that critique include, "Don't wear dorky clothes!" as well as, "You have to make a lot of work," and "Look people in the eye" along with solid technical advice, and suggestions for selling one's work. Mr. Hickey was very generous with his time and his unfiltered opinions, as his followers have come to expect.
