Art Writing & Criticism in the Digital Age
Sky Goodden will lead a two-day workshop on the changing field of contemporary art publishing and criticism, with a focus on the surging industry of online publishing. She will discuss the tools and strategies required to navigate the field successfully, and focus on the professional and practical realities of working in art writing, journalism, and criticism and its extensions through podcasting, editing, publishing, and interviewing.
Students will receive hands-on direction and experience in striking at the heart of a critical position, and pitching a publication. They will come away with a workshopped pitch that they can use to usher in their publishing career. Presented in collaboration with Critical Distance Centre for Curators (CDCC).
