2011 Alfred Z. Solomon Residency:
Art Criticism — Issues & Practice with Caroline Busta

The 2011 Solomon Residency engages long-standing as well as recent debates on the nature and practice of art criticism. Recent articles and texts suggest a “crisis” in the state of criticism, citing a critical “free for all” in which, especially in this digital age, an author’s credibility and a text’s standing are simply unknown. Thus it is an ideal time to bring noted critics and experts to campus, highlighting the complexities of art criticism and its potential as a literary and cultural practice.

Carloline Busta, a successful alumna (2001), is currently an Assistant Editor at Artforum. Her writing has appeared in Artforum, Texte zur Kunst and Fillip. Her forthcoming catalogue entry on Thomas Eggerer in Vitamin P2 (Phaidon, 2011) demonstrates the fluidity of current critical practice, in contrast to the more traditional writing often found in catalogues.
