After a decade of serving as Art Critic for the Village Voice, Jerry Saltz, a one time truck driver turned seasoned art critic, has since 2007 held the coveted title of Senior Art Critic at New York Magazine. Picking up in 2003, shortly after the wrenching contested 2000 election, the attacks of September 11, and the ramping-up of the Iraq War, Seeing Out Louder brilliantly reveals the rise of the hyper art market, the capitulation to money, the dark politics that form the background of this bright period, to the collapse and fall of this market and those politics.
