From the Dublin editors:
What do we expect from art criticism?

What do we expect from art criticism?

Paper’s new Dublin-based editors, Marysia Wieckiewicz-Carroll and Nathan O’Donnell, organised a seminar last June in Temple Bar Gallery & Studios. It has long been recognised that there is a crisis in art criticism – both a universal crisis and a crisis local to Ireland. Rather than rehearse this diagnoses once again, the focus of the session, which included four invited panelists from both the visual art world and theatre, was to look instead for methods of treatment. Both editors reflect on this and what they themselves expect from art criticism.
