London’s [ space ] will be hosting a discussion about writing and being written about in contemporary art practice, titled The Artist’s Voice, running at The White Building on September 24, 6:30-8pm.
Chaired by artist Andrew Bick, the discussion explores the market value of art writing with regards to developing careers as well as to general cultural capital, inviting three panelists to share their views and experiences on the topic: freelance art critic and associate editor of ArtReview, JJ Charlesworth, London-based critic and Afterall editor, Melissa Gronland, and writer and art broadcaster, Louisa Buck.
Using Pablo Helguera’s satirical book, Manual of Contemporary Art Style, and its claim that artists exist as cultivated fields merely harvested by the critics as a starting point, The Artist’s Voice examines the dynamics of these cultural and monetary exchanges and who in all this ends up on the winning side.
See the [ space ] event page for details. **
