Jasper Johns, The Critic Sees (1961)

A Panel of Critics from Northern New Mexico
June 18, 2023, 11 a.m.

Whether they call themselves art critics, reviewers, or art journalists, our panel of experts—including Lucy Lippard, Jon Carver, Jordan Eddy, Diane Armitage, and moderator Ann Landi—has a lot to say on the subject. What does an art critic do? Are critics necessary? How has the profession evolved in the Southwest and how is it changing? Join us for a lively discussion, followed by questions and answers.

Events are free, but please RSVP to ann@thewrightcontemporary.com


Complementing our exhibitions is a roster of lectures and programs. These have included a reading and slide lecture by Gwen Chanzit, curator of the groundbreaking exhibition “Women of Abstract Expressionism” at the Denver Art Museum; an overview of artists estate management by Jason Andres, who is in charge of  overseeing the legacies of Jack Tworkov, Elizabeth Murray, and Mimi Chen Ting, among others; a screening of Agnes Martin: Before the Grid; a panel of art dealers from Santa Fe and Taos; and an “Evening with Larry Bell,” focusing on the six-decade career of this pioneer of the California Light and Space movement (see Archived Events on the man menu).  There will be films and documentaries throughout the year, along with live events. All free, but we do ask that you rsvp to get a head count. Sign up for the newsletter on the Contact page to stay in touch with all that’s happening at the Wright.
