“Deft, opinionated … Foster is one of those rare art theorists whose measured prose can engage a wider readership, cutting through the philosophical inflationism that afflicts much of the higher gossip among art critics.”
“Bad New Days attempts to recover the idea of an avant-garde after a hard half-century of infighting, obfuscation, rivalry, and successive failures to engage with the real world of politics.”
—Mark Kingwell, Harper’s
“Foster’s strength lies in his erudite attention to those artists that have emerged as definitive of their particular moment.”
—Mostafa Heddaya, Artinfo
“His influence is considerable, reaching well beyond the disciplinary boundaries of modern and contemporary art into architecture, literature, and critical theory—all arenas in which Foster is an authority. His formidable powers of analysis and explication are deployed, more often than not, in the service of disruption and destabilization, and his work is as polarizing as it is revelatory.”
“Considering recent paradigms of art ranging from ‘abject’ to ‘postcritical,’ Foster uses his plain, incisive style to help locate the failures of contemporary art in hopes that more novel and critical art can come to the fore.”
