Between June 2014 and April 2015, Dave Hickey posted almost 3,000 digital comments on social media, prompting nearly 700,000 words in response from art lovers, acolytes, and skeptics. Wasted Words is an unedited comprehensive transcript of these exchanges. This polyphonic digital discourse reveals the range of Hickey’s strong opinions, as he embarks on a crypto-enlightenment project for the benefit of "dunces" and "pricks."

Dave Hickey’s digital writings highlight the impact of digital technology on culture, while allowing a more intimate glimpse of their author. These writings reveal the well-known critic in a creative-informal, rather than critical-formal, mode. Not only do they flesh out many of the ideas elucidated in Hickey’s essays on art, but they also cover a variety of topics, including the year 1972, Texas Eagle Scouts, and Hickey's own academic misadventures.

This publication was conceived and produced by LG Williams and The Estate of LG Williams™.
