This screening is presented with generosity from e-flux, New York.

  • Judgment and Contemporary Art Criticism Forum

    JEFF DERKSEN, DIEDRICH DIEDRICHSEN, MARIA FUSCO, TOM MORTON, WILLIAM WOOD, TIRDAD ZOLGHADR
    February 27–February 28, 2009

    Emily Carr University of Art + Design
    Theatre 301, 1399 Johnston Street, Vancouver, British Columbia

    Judgment and Contemporary Art Criticism, is a two-day forum on the state of contemporary art criticism co-organized by Artspeak and Fillip. Through a keynote address by Tirdad Zolghadr and two panels made up of international critics Diedrich Diederichsen, Jeff Derksen, Maria Fusco, Tom Morton and William Wood, the forum seeks to address what is at stake in the shifting value of judgment within contemporary art writing. A renewed interest in the efficacy and function of art criticism has arisen in the last decade, embedded in art market speculation, global conflict and recent economic crises. This forum will engage with the key issues produced from these conversations, specifically returning to the role of valuation in contemporary art writing.

    The forum will result in a book-length publication of papers and conversations derived from the event to be co-published by Artspeak and Fillip in late 2009.

    Artspeak and Fillip are pleased to launch Judgment and Contemporary Art Criticism. 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, this 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. The book is distributed by Motto Distribution, Berlin and available directly from Artspeak and Fillip.
