AbstractIn 1960s, the American artist Jasper Johns made a series of drawings and sculptural reliefs making parody between the art critics and the apparatus they helped to create. In The Critic Smiles, he made visible the much-desired blessings from the critic by mounting four human teeth on a toothbrush. This détournement assembly of the oral parts and the hygienic product mocks the interdependent and inimical dynamic between the artist and the critic. As if to suggest the critic is the “domesticated barbarian who rips apart the artwork with his clever words”. In The Critic Sees, Johns materializes “the pathetic situation of the critic who is unable to apprehend anything beyond his own words, opinions, and preconceived notions about art” as asserted by the art historian Roni Feinstein.

Unlike what could be interpreted as an adversarial relationship between the critic and the artist. In the school of architecture, criticism plays an indispensable part in the education of the architect-to-be. Criticism is the battleground where the conceptual motivation and the representing object it aims to signify are put forth by the student as an intellectual construct. The critic is the experienced professional who oversees the battle.
