“As Digital Discourse Turns to a Din, Art Critics’ Clarity Will Be More Essential”

Published by Leave your thoughts

Few professions have been as deeply disrupted by modern technology as journalism. Yet, as Mary Louise Schumacher writes in ArtNews, more people are writing on more platforms and from more points of view than ever. A generational shift” has left the field of art criticism with “more women, more critics of color, and writers from a wider range of purviews.” And, “despite all the downward pressure on the media industry, our digital era has inspired an artistry in criticism itself.” Schumacher’s findings are based on a survey of 300 writers which replicated a groundbreaking 2002 study overseen by András Szántó while he was at the helm of the National Arts Journalism Program at Columbia University.
