Pirates and Farmers: Essays on Taste

By Dave Hickey

Arguably one of the most astute art and cultural critics working today, Hickey’s collection of essays questions and challenges the cultural status quo.

He recently announced his retirement from the field of criticism due to the new extreme popularity and over-simplification and commoditisation of art, he said ‘I miss being an elitist and not having to talk to idiots.’

Author of popular books such as Air Guitar: Essays on Art & Democracy and The Invisible Dragon: Four Essays on Beauty, Hickey’s newest body of essays looks at the super collectors, the trope of the biennale, the loss of looking and much, much more!
