Panel Discussion: “The Art of Feeling: Contemporary Arts Writing and the Internet”
May 1, 2014
Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Auditorium, 3rd Floor
Much has been said about the death of arts criticism as newspapers and print magazines lay off staff writers and cut pages. Less has been said about the unique kinds of writing growing out of the web. Over the past decade, the Internet has helped to increase and nurture arts writing that is personal, approachable, politically engaged, and full of emotion and commentary that would rarely be encouraged or allowed in print.
Hosted by the Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art, this panel examines how feminism and feelings intersect with Internet-based writing about the arts. Writer Alexis Clements moderates a discussion among writers Gabby Bess, Kareem Estefan, Mira Schor, and An Xiao.
Free with Museum admission.
