Judgment and Contemporary Art Criticism

Judgment and Contemporary Art Criticism is the result of a public forum and reading room (held in 2009 at Emily Carr University and at Artspeak respectively) that investigated the role of valuation art criticism. The publication features commissioned texts by forum presenters and respondents: Jeff Derksen, Diedrich Diederichsen, James Elkins, Maria Fusco, Sven Lütticken, Tom Morton, Kristina Lee Podesva, William Wood, and Tirdad Zolghadr. Examining the efficacy and function of art criticism, the publication focuses on the role of judgment in contemporary art writing and includes transcriptions from forum discussions with the Vancouver audience.

Co-edited by Jeff Khonsary and Melanie O’Brian and co-published by Artspeak and Fillip.

Judgment and Contemporary Art Criticism is the first title in Fillip’s Folio Series which presents new and previously published writing by critics, artists, and curators that engages specific and recurring questions on international contemporary art.

Co-published with Artspeak, Vancouver. Design: The Future.
