Art criticism in the Instagram Age

Wednesday 08 November
@ LACMA - Bing Theater
02:30 PM
Roundtable

Leading journalists and editors will examine the future of arts journalism.

At a time when many media outlets are downsizing, chasing page views, increasingly dependent on social platforms and shedding arts journalists, what is the future of the art critic? What forms of criticism are suited to the dynamics of our digital age? What is the role of the artist and institutions in shaping meaningful, rigorous art discussion? Where can we look for inspiration?

The panel conversation will be moderated by Mary Louise Schumacher Art and Architecture Critic, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
