William Powhida, the Brooklyn-based artist and art critic, just finished a drawing for the September issue of the Brooklyn Rail. Titled “The Game”, the drawing is a playable board game that is actually part satire, part scathing critique on the art world establishment.
Powhida seems to be controversy’s favorite child, and has built up quite a reputation for himself:
Described as a “gadfly in the art establishment” by the New York Times, “an irresistible double-dipper and ingenious double-crosser” by the Los Angeles Times and a “stupid twerp” by the editor of Artnet Online Magazine, Powhida is a mercurial personality who has been investigating new ways to survive the volatile and Janus-faced art world.
