TLDR: #48 -- Art Critics Love Us On Yelp
March 7, 2015 7:34 PM - Subscribe

Brian Droitcour is a professional art critic, and a Yelp user. In 2012 he started using the popular review site to post his reactions to galleries and museums, using a distinctly un-art world-y voice. This week, Brian sits down with TLDR to talk about art, online criticism, parties and his unusual project.

I was driving home from soccer practice with my son and I needed a podcast with no swear words in it. This podcast episode for the bill! I love Brian's enthusiasm. I only wish more people were able to demonstrate unbridled excitement about modern art. I also enjoyed the way he played with the ideas of authenticity, gate keeping, and collaborative cultural creation. I will definitely peruse his yelp reviews the next time I am in NYC and have some time to burn.

I listened to this on my walk to the nail salon. Reminded me how glad I am that I have already found a good one!

I do love the idea of using Yelp as a form for art reviews. I imagine that the ensuing exhibition was also really cool.
