Schedule Update & Reminder: Speed Art Criticism at Nuit Blanche!

Nuit Blanche is bound to be a crazy evening for everyone, but I just wanted to post a reminder and schedule update for Speed Art Criticism, where everyone is welcome to meet a group of Toronto art critics face to face! (Artists are also welcome to bring a small work or reproduction and have it critiqued on a first come, first served basis.)

LOCATION: The Six String Garage, 1658 Queen Street West (East of Roncesvalles)

SCHEDULE: (updated, with a few of these critics many outlets noted)
7pm-10pm: David Balzer (Eye Weekly), Dan Adler (Artforum)
10pm-1am: Sarah Milroy (Canadian Art, Globe and Mail), Otino Corsano (ArtUS)
1am-4am: Amish Morrell (C Magazine), Elena Potter (BlogTO)
4am-7am: Bill Clarke (Magenta Magazine, Modern Painters), Leah Sandals (National Post)

->Murray Whyte (Toronto Star) is also slated for the earlier part of the evening though may have to leave early due to family needs
->RM Vaughan (Globe and Mail), previously slated for 1am to 4am, had to withdraw with regrets due to work commitments.

Hope to see you there!

Hi Leah,
Thanks for posting the schedule. Looks like you drew the short straw with the 4-7 am shift. Good luck!

Leah Sandals said...

Thanks Ingrid! I actually was determined for this event to go ahead, which is why I took the 4-7 shift. Bill Clarke has also been AMAZING in agreeing to do that shift with me. If it wasn't for him... I dunno what I would do! : ) If you're in that end of town, do drop by, and have a fun night whatever happens!

I will also note that Bill has a review out in the latest ARTnews! He also contributes to Border Crossings and a bazillion other art outlets. Very connected critic/art lover and worth meeting.

Thanks for the great speed criticism last night (this morning.) It was nice to finally meet you in person after reading your words for so long.
