moratorium

Okay, I haven't seen a Jerry Saltz write-up in a couple weeks, this might be a good time to make a request.

A few years ago Jerry called for a four-year moratorium on photography-based painting. I would like to call for a six-month moratorium on Jerry Saltz writing about the art market, including even writing the word "market". Also, any use of the words "biennial" and "fair" (unless he is writing specifically about work seen at a biennial or fair). Oh, and a moratorium on use of the word "sexy". I'm tired of it.

Can we make a petition? Will you sign it?

UPDATE 10/10/07 - ugh, he really blew it.

use of the word sexy to describe watches, kitchen utensils, and the stock market is part of the war on sex. but sex has already lost, because desire has always been thoroughly administered.

Yes, I would sign it.

In defense of Jerry, he's just about the only critic who can write about the art-market without sounding totally pedantic, self-righteous, or otherwise annoying. On the other hand, we would probably be well served by everyone shutting up about the market for a little while. So, I'd sign a statement that bans the mention of the market in all art-criticism for six months and temporarily censor the word from my own criticism. Still, and what about related words like "commerce", "careerism", and "product", etc... that function similarly (mostly to avoid talking about our experience of the art or to assume someone's being cynical when they're really just being a crappy artist.)
