Arts Genius? Says Who?: Regina Hacket Critiques the Genius Awards
posted by August 7 at 14:39 PMon
P-I art critic Regina Hackett has been writing about the Genius Awards for the last five years. But in all the writing she’s done, she’s never said what she really, really thinks about the awards. Does she think the awards have gone to the right people? For a critic, she’s been silent on this point.
Until now. She may not always say what she really thinks in the print edition of the P-I, but she says exactly what she thinks on her blog. (Have you noticed this?) In her latest entry, she critiques the roster of Genius Award recipients for the last five years. There are people who’ve won whom she says didn’t deserve it. And she names some people who haven’t won a Genius Award whom she thinks should. What she has to say is definitely surprising.
