Dave Hickey’s book on beauty “The Invisible Dragon” is the bomb. It started as four essays in the 1990s when Dave was so famous, he was touring around to all the amazing art centres just lecturing, and people started asking him: “Can you explain beauty to us?” and he did. When his editors at University of Chicago Press wanted to republish last year, Hickey wrote a manifesto at the end of the book called American Beauty. It’s absolutamente perfecto.
