In preparation for the fall VAP Art Criticism events, I will be running three discussions, open to everyone in the SAIC community.
These discussions will be held in Michigan 707
1. Open discussion of the state of art criticism
Friday September 30, 4:30 - 5:30, place TBA
Everyone is invited to talk about the current condition of art criticism. Does criticism matter? Is there enough criticism, either in School or outside it? Who are the most interesting critics?
I will introduce this fall's VAP events, and talk about what led up to them.
2. Reading group on art criticism
Same day, same place, 5:30 - 7:00
This is the first of two reading groups in preparation for the VAP public roundtable, "States of Art Criticism," which will be October 11. The roundtable will be published as a book. Also in the book there will be another roundtable that was held this last spring in Ireland. The transcript of the roundtable is being read by all the participants of the October roundtable. In this reading group we will discuss the roundtable in Ireland and the background of the SAIC event.
