Ben Davis

Ben Davis is currently the National Art Critic for artnet News. He is the author of 9.5 Theses on Art and Class (Haymarket, 2013), which examines how a clear understanding of class can help make sense of contemporary art’s most persistent debates, including definitions of political art, the troubled statuses of “outsider” and street art, and questions on maintaining faith in art itself.
