Criticism in the Digital Age

Listen to Criticism in the Digital Age

A passionate panel of international and local arts critics debate the nature – and future – of arts criticism, right now.

While we find new ways to respond to the art around us, what’s happening to formal criticism? As the digital world sees traditional publications dwindle, and self-published opinions proliferate, arts criticism finds itself in a precarious position. The new landscape might be more democratic, but what does it mean for criticism as a profession? Has the critic become an endangered species?

Moderator Katrina Sedgwick leads the discussion with guests Alice Rawsthorn (UK), Yun-Cheol Kim (Korea), Deborah Jones, Jane Howard and Dylan Rainforth.

There’s much more to it: visit Criticism Now to explore more ideas about criticism.
