Summary
A blunt and hilarious assault on the swirling hot mess that is the art world. From sycophantic fans to duplicitous gallerists, fatuous patrons to self-aggrandizing art stars, he lampoons each and every facet of the eminently ridiculous industry of truth and beauty. Art Comic is brimming with references and cameos, outsized personalities and shuddering nonsense-Robert Rauschenberg smashes a beer bottle, Francesca Woodman, a wine glass. Amidst it all, Thurber's twisting drawings and laugh-out-loud dialogue convey a complicated picture of an industry at the intersection of fantasy and reality
