Watch the Throne

ByJohn Demetry

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
In the four years of CityArts under the editorship of Armond White, JOHN DEMETRY developed a new approach to film and arts criticism. He applies the process of LECTIO DIVINA to the critical form—an art in its own right! First, DEMETRY considers the subject’s cultural relevance. Then, he analyzes the artwork’s thematically-integrated or ideologically-loaded style. Finally, he explores the way the artist addresses or exploits the audience’s spiritual needs. Essentially, this methodology intends to illuminate what a given piece of Pop or “fine art” reveals about man’s relationship to Jesus Christ. Thus DEMETRY levels the pop-art/high-art binary and draws inspiration for the title of this compendium: WATCH THE THRONE // Reviews range from: Film, Music, Television, New Media, Contemporary Novels, Gallery Retrospectives & Showcases, Art Installations, Film Revival, and Broadway. // FEATURING: INTRODUCTION BY GREGORY SOLMAN // Typeset & Cover Design by Jacob Hernandez
