Ooo, more ruthless art critiques please.

I know. I just saw this one and I'm already craving more.

eisenman fucking crumbled, and cried when he was raked over the coals for how shitty his DAAP building was at the university of cincinnati. niland got that bitch to get up and walk out of his own keynote presentation when he couldn't defend himself.
he's a goddamn hack, and all he knows is talkitecture.

four worst buildings i've ever been in by famous architects.
1-wexner center-eisenman

final comment is perfect, he is just posing b/c he knows the camera is there.
i wish i'd gotten the chance to be critiqued by him, i did get will bruder once, and i told him to fuck off.

i'm five starring this b/c he is a giant douche.

Artists treat each other like shit for the same reason upper classmen at military academies treat freshmen like shit: someone did it to them once so they're sure as hell gonna do it to someone else

five stars because i wish i had strong opinions about buildings

wow, fitting name.

kind of reminds me of the senior project presentations at my alma matar, only with less indirect commentary from the profs and a much more direct "you're a fucking retard! We've wasted 4 years on your dumbass!!"

Remember, don't take it personally.

This guy is no Art Vandelay.
Frank Rizzo - 2008-04-06
technically, no one is.

The only time I laughed during the Seinfeld finale was when they said that the judge's name was Arthur Vandelay.

I love professors of the arts.

What utter self-flagellating shitheads.

A critique is supposed to teach the student something about their craft, not crush their will to live.
AgentOrange - 2008-04-07
no love of schadenfreude?

kelpfoot - 2008-04-07
Isn't self-flagellation what medieval monks did to ward off the Plague?

sosage - 2008-04-07
What a fucking poser douche cold hearted cuntalicious fuck. Just critique the fucking kid's work you self important asshole. What is the architectural equivalent of yanking a picture off the wall and tearing it into pieces? I want to do that.
jangbones - 2008-04-07
douchebags talk a lot

Would you like a slice of condescension cake? Well, too bad!

I love how they're talking as if she's not there, when she's...right there.
Hooper_X - 2008-04-07
Holy fuck, the level of condescension is mindblowing. "I'm not asking her, because she obviously doesn't know. I'm asking you."
Screwtape - 2008-04-07
Maybe someone who knows something about architecture can enlighten me, but if all she had was that crap on the table, why shouldn't she get a beat down?
frau_eva - 2008-04-07
You know all the other professors in the background want to murder him. Look at them smiling and happy until he starts talking. Foreign architect tries to remedy the situation the best he can, but the rest of them are just waiting for the tenured fuck to die.
Slagathor - 2008-04-07
So... what? None of you has ever sat through a fine arts studio workshop or defended a thesis MA or PhD? For that matter, do thesis MAs even exist anymore... The whole purpose of an oral exam is for faculty to castigate one another over antique grudges, utterly ignoring the student in question. If the work really is horrible, then her supervisor is completely to blame for a) signing off on something that should have been rusticated, and b) signing off on a committee that was guaranteed to be fractious. Of course, the end result of many of these sorts of oral examinations is that every eventually says "congratulations" and you all wander over to the faculty club for Port.
Valkor - 2008-04-09
Yes Slag. Worthless professors with worthless degrees have to be catty to each other to make their worthless lives have some meaning.

Architecture must be too close to other liberal arts if they need this shit to make themselves feel important.


Hooper_X - 2008-09-22
My MA thesis defense was pretty mellow. I talked about my research, answered a couple questions (mostly with "That's beyond the scope of my project but it's definitely worth further investigation") and then we went out for... Jamaican, I think.

Cleaner82 - 2008-05-01
You want to survive in the art world you have to learn how to take this BS, and sift the occasional constructive comment out for your own use. Learning how to take crap is actually one of the most useful lessons of art schooling. But it's always painful to see this happen to someone else, and not in an entertaining way, so I docked it.

Talk to the person you're abusing you coward.
