The article presents view on art criticism by Sami Rosenstock of Los Angeles, California. Rosenstock contends over the artists attitude to reject with contempt criticism as they believe that such contains a certain kind of unity that necessitates no further reading. Rosenstock believes that the current art's overriding of law, to be specific the laws of practice, were articulated and determined by artists and critics, respectively, and that criticism is monitored by concepts not by techniques. The modern art as for Rosenstock is all about chic corruption, pessimism, and careering that equal high value.
