In 1992 Mat Gleason founded and continues to publish Coagula Art Journal, described as the “National Enquirer of the Art World” by the New York Observer.  The New York Times described Mat Gleason as a famously provocative Los Angeles art critic, while the L.A. Weekly once referred to him as a cranky, self-exiled gossipmonger. A consummate critic, he has written for numerous publications, from Modern Painters to the Lollapalooza Concert Tour’s Art Program. The early issues of Coagula were anthologized in the book MOST ART SUCKS (Smart Art Press, 1998).  In his 1999 review of the book, David Bowie raved: “Gleason clobbers the closed door snobbishness that has increasingly distanced the public from the rarefied air of the art world.” Mat Gleason is a regular guest on the Ovation TV Network and has appeared alongside artists John Baldessari, Richard Tuttle, and Agnes Martin in the art world documentary Art City: Simplicity.  Gleason is a featured contributor to the Huffington Post’s Arts pagesince its 2012 debut.
