Sarrita Hunn, managing editor of Temporary Art Review, leads a workshop exploring the possibilities of art criticism.

Pelican Bomb and Temporary Art Review present an art writing workshop, “Imagining Alternative Art Criticism,” with Sarrita Hunn, co-founder and managing editor of Temporary Art Review.

Art writing has experienced a resurgence as a practice with latent potential to not only discuss, but also expand upon the contours of contemporary art. However, too frequently, we carry it forward with inherited publishing platforms and outmoded means of address. We often discuss art writing’s value—and more often its absence—but what about its potential? In this workshop, we aim to concretely explore “alternative” art criticism in its varied forms.

Throughout the workshop, we will examine many different structural examples, from creative writing to activism, in order to consider ways we may expand the possibility of what, how, and where to write about art.

The workshop is free and open to the public. Email to reserve your spot. The workshop will be followed by a book launch for To Make a Public: Temporary Art Review 2011 - 2016.
