LATITUDE is so excited to be launching a Spring Critique Group hosted by Eileen Rae Walsh! The LATITUDE Spring Critique Group is geared towards artists with in-progress lens-based projects looking for critical feedback and engaging discussion. Participants are expected to attend all meetings and present work bi-weekly.
Critique will be held in 8 sessions, 6-9pm on alternating Mondays (May 22nd, June 5th, June 19th, July 3rd, July 17th, July 31st, August 14th and August 28th). We can only accommodate a group of 12, so make sure to sign up soon!
Each meeting, 6 individuals on rotation will be given 20 minutes each for feedback and discussion around their work. Critique group members are also invited to share and discuss readings with the group (e.g. an essay, theory, literary excerpt, a poem, or any piece of text) that in some way influences making, interpreting, or reading visual work.
