Found the analysis of this critic (Dave Hickey) to be amusing:
"I just talked to a friend of mine who came back from New York, and he said, 'I didn't see anything but C-prints.' They're all going to turn green, which makes them terrible collector objects. And they're all really boring.
What do you do with an art world in which the normative work of art is a giant C-print of three Germans standing beside a mailbox. What's that? Stop it, please.
There's a tendency in the art world to mistake the end of something for the beginning of something. I think this is certainly the case with photography."

Anyways, I'm not in a position to comment on his view of contemporary art; it just struck me as kind of funny. I personally have enjoyed the giant C-prints I've seen.
