Live stream discussion "Digital Critics: The Early History of Online Art Criticism"

 Registration is closed for this event
Join Leonardo author Charlotte Frost for a discussion of her article "Digital Critics: The Early History of Online Art Criticism" featured in the February issue of Leonardo journal. We will be producing this live stream on Facebook and Zoom for audience discussion and participation.

Art critic Jerry Saltz is regarded as a pioneer of online art criticism by the mainstream press, yet the Internet has been used as a platform for art discussion for over 30 years. There have been studies of independent print-based arts publishing, online art production and electronic literature, but there have been no histories of online art criticism. In this article, the author provides an account of the first wave of online art criticism (1980–1995) to document this history and prepare the way for thorough evaluations of the changing form of art criticism after the Internet.

Save the date now with your RSVP and we'll get in touch with the details on how to join.
