Art Criticism: Inside the Critic's Brain with Cinqué Hicks
Thursdays, 6:30-9 p.m. and Thu., Oct. 13, 6:30-9 p.m. Continues through Oct. 29 2011
Why do art critics review some work and not others? Are there secrets to getting your work written about? Do you even want your work written about? This class will survey the current state of art criticism and provide insight on how art critics look at and think about artwork. Through readings and open discussions, students will gain an understanding of the mechanics as well as some of the underlying philosophies that drive art criticism. Also considered will be the current "crisis" in art criticism and proposals for the future.
