Jerry Saltz knows it hurts to be criticized, but, he tells, "If all criticism is enthusiastic it sells the art world short." He remembers after he wrote his first piece for the Voice, on Kara Walker's "painful, uneven show" at Wooster Gardens in 1998, he was terrified he'd be fired. A collection of his Village Voice reviews and essays, "Seeing Out Loud," has been published by The Figures press.
