Jarrett Earnest: What it Means to Write About Art: Notes on the Future of Criticism

Equal parts oral history and analysis of craft,  Jarrett  Earnest’s new book,  What it Means to Write About Art: Interviews with art critics  (David Zwirner Books, 2018) offers an unprecedented overview of American art writing. His wide-ranging conversations with critics, historians, journalists, novelists, poets and theorists illustrate different ways of writing, thinking and looking at art. He’ll discuss this project, aspects of interviews in general, and some possible futures of art criticism.

Jarrett  Earnest is a writer and artist living in New York City. From 2014 to 2017 he was faculty at the free experimental art school Bruce High Quality Foundation University (BHQFU). He coedited the volumes  Tell Me Something Good: Artist Interviews from The Brooklyn Rail (2017) and  For Bill, Anything: Images and Text for Bill Berkson (2015). His writing has appeared in the  Brooklyn Rail,  Village Voice, and  Art in America, among many others.
