    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.
