Dave Hickey’s “The Invisible Dragon”


After reading “Air Guitar” earlier this semester I was curious to read what else Hickey had put into print during his tenure of shooting from the hip criticism. When originally published in 1993, the concept of beauty could easily have been described as naive. Hickey takes a strong stance to the value of the very concept, while adorning such work as the, then, controversial photos of Robert Mapplethorpe. It’s a super quick read with a mere 4 essays. It’s worth a read.
