In his new book, writer Matthew Collings turns his attention to the New York art scene, and applies to it the same keen, unpretentious intelligence and perceptive wit that made Blimey!, his book on the London art world, such a smashing success. Here, at last, is an art critic who neither inflates his language nor "dumbs-down" his observations -- Collings has, almost single handedly, created a new, immensely readable but no less thoughtful, way to write about art and art makers. From Warhol himself to the critics, artists, and dealers (of art, that is) in the sixties, to super-brats of the eighties like Koons and Schnabel, and right up to the young players of the nineties -- all of them come to vivid life on the page, and are as believable, human, vulnerable or monstrous (often all of these at the same time) as the characters in a first-rate novel. Lavishly illustrated with color photographs by documentary filmmaker Ian MacMillan.

Review: It Hurts: New York Art from Warhol to Now

User Review  - Darran Mclaughlin - Goodreads

More good stuff. I love Collings' lackadaisical, cool, brutally honest writing. This book gave a much better understanding of contemporary art trends and helped me to get the relationship between pop art, minimalism, conceptual art and the rest. I definitely recommend it. Read full review
