Art Talk with Edward M. Gómez

Critic's Notebook: A Look at Art and Artists in Post-postmodernist Times

Saturday, November 20, 2010

5:00 PM at The MAC

His talk, which is based on research he has been doing for a forthcoming new book of art-themed essays, will examine such themes as the legacy of postmodernist critical theory, the role of craftsmanship as a powerful, expressive language in art-making and the blurring of the aesthetic line between works made by academically trained artists and their self-taught counterparts.

Edward M. Gómez is a journalist, author, critic, graphic designer, curator and environmental activist. A former writer and correspondent on the staff of TIME magazine in the U.S. and overseas, he also has written for the New York Times, S.F.Gate/San Francisco Chronicle,, ARTnews, Art in America, Art & Antiques, Art + Auction, Metropolis, Interview, Modern Painters, the Japan Times (Japan), Fahrenheit (Mexico), Reforma (Mexico) and many other publications in the U.S. and abroad. Gómez just finished a writer's residency at Yaddo, the legendary retreat for writers, painters, poets, music composers and other artists in Saratoga Springs, New York.
