"Criticism in Critical Times”

Brought to you by Sotheby’s Institute of Art and The School of The New York Times

Politics in the United States and beyond, in the past twelve months, has prompted many to reflect on their own personal response. But what should be the response of those whose profession it is to criticize our culture? Should they simply raise their voices? When so many areas of our lives have been politicized, does critical writing only add to the cacophony? Or are there other ways for critics to react? Three leading New York writers come together to discuss their outlooks.

Panelists:

A.O. Scott is a journalist and the chief film critic at The New York Times and has taught at The School of The New York Times.
Nancy Princenthal is a writer and critic who is the former Senior Editor of Art in America, she has also contributed to Artforum, Parkett, The Village Voice, and The New York Times.
Barry Schwabsky is the art critic for The Nation and co-editor of international reviews for Artforum.

Morgan Falconer, Faculty, MA Contemporary Art, Online, Summer Study at Sotheby’s Institute of Art, New York and Journalist, Art Critic
