Looking at some mainstream critics **

Considering various critics in a bid to pin down what makes interesting / valid criticism.


I like the following idea from a Momus article: https://momus.ca/a-crit-of-the-crit/

Why not start with what brought each person [i.e. artist] to the room? Is it a moral question? A question about perception? A penchant for transgression? A wish to play? A longing for attention? A will to strike some kind of balance between the known and unknown, the regulated and unregulated, the ordered and disordered? A love of just touching things?
