'Attention! Criticism and its Distractions'

02-10-2012

Writing about art is a way of paying attention to the world, but also a distraction from it. At a time when we are frequently told that traditional modes and spans of attention are in decline, the panel asks what kinds of concentration and what sorts of distraction are at work in art criticism today.

Participants:
Orit Gat (Writer, Editor and Translator, Brooklyn)
Joshua Cohen (Novelist and Critic, New York and Berlin)
Marina Warner (Writer, Novelist and Critic, London)
Chair: Brian Dillon (Writer and UK Editor, Cabinet, London)
