Art Criticism Now

26 Mar 2014

What do we expect of criticism?

Who is it for? Who writes it? Where is it published? Are there examples from the past which suggest how criticism should or should not engage with art and artists? This one-day conference looks at aspects of these questions, with a view to understanding how contemporary criticism relates to its past. 

Speakers:

Michael Archer (Goldsmith’s College)

Patricia Bickers (Art Monthly)

Matthew Bowman (Essex) on Art Criticism in the Contracted Field

Joanna Melvin (University of the Arts London)

Stephen Parnell (Architecture, Nottingham) on Criticism in AD [Architectural Design] 

Sam Thorne (Frieze) on The Crises of Criticism

This event is organised by the Nottingham Institute for Visual Culture, and takes place at the University of Nottingham.

Please send all enquiries to Richard Wrigley.

Venue: Department of Art History, University of Nottingham

12noon - 6pm
