THEORY AND CRITIQUE: The Raw and the Cooked
So it is helpful to remember that new art, like Picasso's, Pollock's, and Warhol's bred new theory, and not critique—although most of it was wrong. I will begin when it was good for me. I spent the most Why footnote Einstein looking at the clock ...

I read difficult books in difficult languages, I write difficult essays about difficult art. My problem is that I belong to the academic species but not to the art tribe of academics. My relationship with the art tribe is best summarized by my story about the Legendary Blonde Dog at the University of Pennsylvania. Every morning my minder would pick me up from the bronze bench where the bronze Ben Franklin is taking his ease. After a few minutes of my sitting there, the Legendary Blonde Dog would appear with a stick in his mouth. He would lay the stick between Ben Franklin’s bronze feet. Finally the dog would retrieve the stick, run around, and place the stick again. I would have thrown the stick but no, the Blonde Dog was a starfucker. Every time I come to I feel like the Blonde Dog, and this is the last little stick I will lay between your feet. In return, I would like to speak to you today as a retired school- teacher, and deflect our discourse from expensive bad art, delusional politics, cruel bureaucracy, and genteel whining. I would like to return to the only place we are free and safe, back to the classroom, which is the only place in a university where magic might happen. So let me suggest that some tidying up might guide us toward what we all want: new, influential art, and new, influential theory.
"The only thing I could think of in my defence was that the boat has a fridge in it," he says. Boland had set off earlier that day to Mitchell's Auction Rooms in Roscrea where there was a catering auction on that day, and where he was fairly certain of finding the second-hand stainless steel fridge they needed. "I put down my €500 deposit and got my bidding card," he says. "There was a perfect fridge but it was fairly far down the catalogue so I had a couple of hours to spare. With three different auctions happening on the premises at the same time, there was plenty to occupy his time. They told me it would take four minutes for my burger to cook and, while I was waiting, I could see the big screen where they were showing one of the other auctions. Someone placed a bid for €6,500 and Boland, realising at a glance that the boat was worth more than that, raised his hand. When buying at auction, the received wisdom is that you decide in advance what you are going to bid on, while ensuring you have the money to pay for it and the space to put it. That's how it works on paper. "The trip to the accounts office can be a sobering, humbling experience," says George Gerard Mealy of Mealy's in Castlecomer, Co Kilkenny (mealys. "They know what they want, they'll have it all measured out, and then they'll see a massive.
