Borrowing its title from John Baldessari’s 1971 Halifax installation I Will Not Make Any More Boring Art, this workshop proposes a critical reflection on art writing after the Internet. Why write an exhibition review in 2014? Why read one? This workshop will look at alternative models of art criticism and its distribution from the 1960s to today, and propose ideas about how to identify and avoid the structural and conceptual platitudes of contemporary art writing, both onand off-line.
Articulation is a critical art writing workshop series is intended to offer participants the support, skills, and editorial assistance they need to establish or expand their critical art writing practice. Established and emerging art writers are encouraged to apply. One piece of writing from each Articulation workshop, as identified through a juried selection process, will be published into a special featured section on apt613.ca
