Dave Hickey lecturing at the School of Visual Arts, Sept. 9, 2009
Still from a video by James Kalm

by Charlie Finch

Watching a video of another ridiculous lecture by Dave Hickey at SVA, one is not surprised to see that the bulbous phony is still up to his old tricks. Hickey is a guy who tickles his audience with hoary signifiers, constantly preens his own self-regard and takes an obvious theme, that is also false, and gently beats it to death.
