Dave Hickey and Julia Friedman

Dave Hickey & Julia Friedman

  • This is a past program

In 2014 the art critic Dave Hickey posted nearly 3,000 comments on social media, prompting some 700,000 responses. Hickey’s provocative digital discourse is compiled in two recent books: Wasted Words: The Essential Dave Hickey Online Compilation, an unedited transcript of these exchanges, and Dust Bunnies, an assemblage of Hickey’s digital aphorisms. Julia Friedman, the art historian who edited both volumes, joins Hickey to discuss the impact of digital technology on culture. 

All Hammer public programs are free and made possible by a major gift from an anonymous donor.

The Hammer’s digital presentation of its public programs is made possible by the Billy and Audrey L. Wilder Foundation.
