Contemporary Art Magazines Meeting #8: Artforum - at Eli Ping Frances Perkins Gallery

+ Attending
This week we will be reading and discussing the May issue of Artforum .
Please note that we will be meeting at a different location this week: Eli Ping Frances Perkins gallery on the Lower East Side: 55-59 Chrystie Street, suite 202 ( Be prepared to quite possibly sit on the floor. The nomadic nature of this group is getting more and more interesting every time!
This class is conceived as a reading group focused on a single issue of an art magazine at every meeting. A sense of continuation is not based on reading the same magazine, but rather, on asking similar questions across the board of publishing. Such questions can range from the mundane (Why is this being published right now? Is the writing worthwhile? What is the editorial line like, if one seems to exist?) to the expansive (What makes for a real contribution in art publishing? What is the role of criticism in contemporary art?). The goal is to generate a conversation that would discuss both the contemporary art scene and the practice of publishing and writing about art. Similarly, the choice of magazines can and should vary from the obvious to the specific. Previous sessions have taken up Artforum, Art Review, frieze, e-flux, Mousse and Texte zur Kunst. We welcome suggestions for publications for future sessions on the class blog.
