Running annually since 2016, this twelve-week course offers artists the tools to significantly improve how they represent themselves. Based on the belief that we can’t think critically if we don’t read critically, the course devotes six weeks to exploring critical texts from various schools of thought. Participants are encouraged to read between the lines to untangle textual strategies of common art world texts—press releases, curatorial statements, exhibition reviews, catalogue essays—cultivating a less naïve approach to how meaning is generated. Analysis of key readings will be followed by peer critique sessions, for which each artist will write a statement on his or her practice. The crits, combined with the previously studied strategies, enable artists to close the gap between how they see their practices and how they write about them.
