The practice of art criticism and independent curation is mysterious. What do these activities involve and why are they important to any art community? Critic and independent curator Patricia Briggs will discuss her practice, which she views as parallel to that of an artist's. She will share current projects, including ongoing interviews with artists, leading an art critic's organization, a curatorial project concerning art and nature, and an investigation of artists' reflections on the Iraq war in her Midwest community. Briggs's writ-ing appears in Artforum International, New Art Examiner, Sense and Society and she has organized exhi-bitions at the Weisman Art Museum and Soap Factory in Minneapolis and Plains Art Museum in North Dakota.
