Critical Information Conference 2015

School of Visual Arts (SVA) presents Critical Information, an interdisciplinary conference examining the contemporary dialogue between art, media, and society. Organized by second-year students in the MFA Art Writing program at SVA, the Critical Information conference provides a critical forum for discussions at the juncture of media, theory, criticism, and the visual arts.

Each year the conference focuses on a specific topic selected by the students. Under this year’s theme “Text and Image,” the conference will present the work of 10 invited participants on three panels: Altered Perceptions with Madeline Schwartzman, Clement Valla, and Suzanne Anker; Book as Object with Matvei Yankelevich, Shannon Michael Cane, and Andrew Roth; and Reading Images with Christian Patterson, Joel Smith, Nicholas Muellner, and Marisol Limon Martinez.

A Quijote Talk by Anne Waldman entitled “NYSchool: Inside the Rhizome” will precede the conference on Thursday, November 19th at 6:30pm.
