I already posted this on Facebook but am posting again because its just utterly shocking. It seems Deborah Jowitt will no longer be writing for the Village Voice because she does not write enough negative reviews:
What I write doesn’t seem like arts criticism as he defines it. To put it more baldly: I do not write enough strongly negative reviews.
The commenters provide great discussion points. Read them through. I think the key phrase is “enough strongly negative”. She critiques but does destroy. Anyone who has read the flippantly derogatory comments in the Times’ reviews understands.
Third in the series.
