6pm – 9pm
REGINA VICTOR – EMPATHY IN CRITICISM AND ART
Regina Victor, Founder of Rescripted, wants you to think back to the best reviews of your art. How did they make you feel? What do you want from your critical community and how do you go about getting it? How do we employ empathy in criticism and how can it further serve the artists? In a culture where it feels like critics don’t see us, how do we build our own critical structures? Learn the basic principles of Rescripted’s review culture, how to write a review and become an artist/critic from a Rescripted angle, and discuss the effects of criticism and critical bias on our art.
What to wear: Casual
What to bring: However you like to take notes
