Patricia Bickers: The Ends of Art Criticism (New Directions in Contemporary Art Series)
At a time where there are repeated claims of the impending demise of art criticism, The Ends of Art Criticism seeks to dispel these myths by arguing that the lack of a single dominant voice in criticism is not, as some believe, a weakness, but a strength, allowing previously marginalised voices and new global and political perspectives to come to the fore.
An essential book for anyone interested in contemporary art criticism, The Ends of Art Criticism benefits from an author whose 30 years of experience as editor of Art Monthly magazine allows her to offer opinionated and thought-provoking insight into the many questions and debates surrounding current critical writing on art, including the relationship between artists and critics, the academicisation of critical discourse, and the relationship between art history and criticism.
Patricia Bickers is Editor at Art Monthly magazine and Director of the Art Monthly Foundation. She has lectured at St Martin's School of Art, London, Goldsmiths' Collage, London and the Ruskin School of Drawing at the University of Oxford, amongst others. She has also curated various exhibitions and was a judge for the Turner Prize in 2001. Patricia is a member of the Association of Art Historians (AAH) and a member of the Association Internationale des Critiques d'Art (AICA).
