Panel Discussion

Writing with Light: Liking vs Critiquing

It has been said that art criticism is dead. Is the expanded arena of platforms—from the early days of Flickr to the current dominance of Instagram—altering the boundaries of art criticism? Have accessibility and immediacy led to uniformity in the images being created today? How is discourse shaped by platform design and mandates?

These and other questions are taken up by art critic and professor Clint Burnham; artist Sylvia Grace Borda, who often utilizes Google Street View; popular landscape Instagrammer Maurice Li; and commercial fashion photographer Kane Hopkins who works across multiple online platforms. Discussion moderated by artist and director of Gallery 295, Patryk Stasieczek (MFA Emily Carr).

Doors at 5 pm; talk at 6 pm sharp.

Writing with Light talks are FREE and open to the public, though RSVP is required: [email protected]
