Roberta Smith is a writer and art critic for the New York Times. She was born in New York City but grew up in Lawrence, Kansas. She graduated from Grinnell College and was awarded a fellowship with the Whitney Museum in New York City where she met Donald Judd. From there, Smith became interested in writing about art by beginning to write monographs of shows and works. In 1972, Smith began working at the Paula Cooper Gallery and at MoMA. It is during this time were she began to create her career and body of work by writing for Artforum. In 1986, she was hired by the New York Times as an art critic due to her numerous essays for catalogues and monographs on many leading contemporary artists at the time. Smith has now been writing for the New York Times for nearly thirty years now and has become a prominent voice/critic in fine art. Her clear and insightful writings of contemporary art in the U.S. have made her an important figure that can recognize, enlighten, and analyze important shifts in visual art of our time.Oct 28, 2013Otis Fine Arts Visiting Artist Lecture Series
Alison Agsten is an up and coming LA based curator who has organized notable shows in Los Angeles. She graduated from UCLA. Much of the shows and events that she organized revolve around public practices that get viewers to interact with the show. Agsten strives to innovate the way people see artwork by enhancing the viewers’ connection with the artist and the institutions that display artwork. She has worked for LACMA from 2005 to 2010 and started to work for the Hammer Museum in 2010 as head of Public Engagement/Director of Visitor Services. One of her most notable shows at the Hammer includes an installation called Game Room in December 2012. In this installation, several artists were invited to create pieces that functioned as analogue interactive games to viewers, which relates to an exponential surge of videogames on smart phones. In addition, Agsten is interested in changing roles of collaboration and fostering relationships amongst the artist, the viewer, and the museum to change the dynamics of interaction within fine art.Oct 2, 2013Fine Arts Blog FeedWe have a new blog!
