Presented in collaboration between fort gondo and The Luminary, art critic Lori Waxman guarantees brief, serious reviews to all artists on a first-come, first-served basis as a part of her ongoing "60 wrd/min art critic" performance. Installed in venues throughout the U.S., from Columbus, Ohio to Portland, Maine, critic Lori Waxman receives artists in need of reviews. Reviews are scheduled and written in twenty-minute increments between the announced hours only. Reviews are signed, published, and ready for pick-up within the time frame of the performance. Artist, artwork, critic, and review all exist in the same space simultaneously. Reviews are free of charge, and are guaranteed to contain serious responses to the work submitted. Critics are not meant to be cheerleaders or educators or advertisers; they are opinionated, thoughtful, informed commentators. Or so they try. All performances will be hosted at fort gondo on the following schedule: March 19th: 1:00-3:30pm & 4:30-7:00pm March 20th: 1:00-3:30pm & 4:30-7:00pm March 21st: 10:00-12:30pm & 1:30-4:00pm 60 wrd/min art critic is funded by a Warhol Foundation | Creative Capital Arts Writers Grant. Additional support comes from the National Endowment for the Arts. About the artist Lori Waxman, born in Montreal, Canada, writes a biweekly column for the Chicago Tribune.
