Judy Fiskin "Best of 2011" in Artforum

Since 1998, Fiskin has used film and video in unfussy ways in order to level some intractable hierarchies, partiucualry those of the art world. See, for example, her hilarious take on the ivory tower--and disaster-obsessed Los Angeles media--in My Getty Center, 1999; or the recent Guided Tour, 2010, in which the ostensibly authoritative, frequently highfalutin musings of two docents (heard but not seen here) are juxtaposed with images of completely unrelated artworks, to slyly comic effect.
