Title: The End of Mainstream Art Criticism?
Description: Just a few decades ago, mainstream newspapers and magazines that considered contemporary culture as their broad subject included designated art critics as regular contributors. A vigorous mainstream dialogue about art past and present resulted. The existence of that often contentious but always accessible dialogue -- conducted by such diverse figures as Peter Plagens, Ingrid Sischy, Hilton Kramer, and Robert Hughes -- implied that awareness of art and the discourse around it was an aspect of active citizenship. The best of what they wrote endures as significant contributions to the literature of art. While the impulse to produce that kind of writing for that kind of audience persists, the opportunities for doing so, as either a staff writer or a free lance, have diminished considerably. This dialogue will examine those developments and their implications for the future of informed writing about art as a feature of mainstream culture.
