Ad Hoc Vox: On Criticism
7pm Thursday 30 October 2008
Guild & Greyshkul - 28 Wooster St New York, NY
Tonight at Guild & Greyshkul, Jennifer Dudley and Colleen Asper present the latest installment of Ad Hoc Vox, a developing series of migrating panel discussions on contemporary art. On Criticism brings together several very active figures in the arts community to discuss the relevancy of critical writing today. Judging by the participants lined up for evening, the fulcra of the event seem to be issues of critical writing as a component of other creative work, the agency of such writing and writing in an age of highly visible digital self-publishing. Speaking tonight will be painter and writer Roger White, founding co-editor of Paper Monument, n+1's sister journal of the arts; João Ribas, critic and curator of the Drawing Center; artist John Miller; Artnet's Ben Davis; critic Martha Schwendener; and critic Jan Avgikos.
