Criticism

Critiquing art involves more than mere subjective opinion-based statements concerning artworks, it is an evaluation based on a variety of criteria. Although philosophers and thinkers have discussed art in a variety of ways for centuries, Art Criticism as a modern genre of writing began in France in the 18th century and was popularized by the works of Diderot, one of the foremost figures of the Enlightenment period. Today, with digital communication technologies art criticism has moved away from traditional high-culture channels and there are numerous web-blogs and popular magazines that produce critiques that are respected in the art world.

The Washington Post Pulitzers: Phil Kennicott, Criticism

The Washington Post Pulitzers: Phil Kennicott, Criticism by Phil Kennicott & The Washington PostRecipient of the Pulitzer Prize for Criticism.

For critic Philip Kennicott, the line between art and social criticism is a thin one. In a voice both knowledgeable and compassionate, Kennicott joins his readers in contemplating the much deeper meaning underlying aesthetics.

From his examination of violence and war in his review of a Taryn Simon photographic project, to his analysis of corporate America in an exhibit for architect Kevin Roche, Kennicott not only interprets art, but captures and conveys its meaning and significance in a manner that invites readers in, and encourages us to look...

Magritte's Labyrinth

Magritte's Labyrinth by Ellen Handler SpitzGertrude Stein once asked why certain painted pictures engrave themselves into our minds with fierce tenacity. Why do they unsettle us? The enigmatic art of Belgian Surrealist artist René Magritte has long been subject to art historical and philosophical inquiry and mined by the worlds of advertising, illustration, and film. Yet Stein's questions are rarely asked. "Magritte's Labyrinth" takes them on. It introduces a vital psychological perspective that has gone missing. Beyond manifest cognitive dissonance, it questions the powerful emotional impact of Magritte's painted imagery.

Anonymous Photographs of the Past: A Petition against Death?

Anonymous Photographs of the Past: A Petition against Death? by Pierre-Alexandre FradetABOUT THE BOOK: Found in France and the United States, the photos in this book depict unknown scenes and people from the 19th century. Each day sends them further into the recesses of the past, all while bringing them closer to a possible identification. Although they remain anonymous for the moment, we would be mistaken to think that there is nothing else to be said about them. Indeed, these photographs can be mined for philosophically pertinent material from ontological, illustrative, and ethical points of view, as Pierre-Alexandre Fradet here demonstrates.
