The more I know about art writing, the less I understand. Therefore I'm grateful to be invited to participate in panels where others can shed light on this issue. For serious! There are so many paths to arriving at this somewhat unusual profession, and ultimately I really only know my own trajectory and activities best.
So... next opp on this for me (and maybe for you too) is "Careers in Art Writing," a panel at Hart House in Toronto on March 4. The event is open to the public as well as students, though RSVP is requested. Here's the details:
The Education and Outreach Sub-Committee of the Hart House Art Committee presents:
