Approaching the art world as a complex and mysterious space, this conversation will consider Roslyn Bernstein’s illustrious career as an art critic and professor of art journalism, focusing in particular on her long-form reviews of groundbreaking exhibitions at the Grey. In addition, it will address these crucial questions: How do artists in Europe, the U.S., Asia, the Middle East, and the Americas find space to live and work? How do they create and exhibit art in a politicized world where freedom is often limited? How do smaller museums and other art venues survive the economic pressures and competition in the art market?
Join Roslyn Bernstein (GSAS ’67, ’74), art critic, professor of art journalism, and author of the just-released Engaging Art: Essays and Interviews from Around the Globe, and Lynn Gumpert, director of NYU’s Grey Art Gallery, as they examine these under-the-radar subjects, illuminating the pains and pleasures of contemporary artistic production as well as the challenges faced today by artists, curators, and gallerists around the globe.
Presented by the NYU Alumni Association and Grey Art Gallery.
