Jovanka Popova’s presentation at XLVII AICA International Congress South Korea
October 8, 2014
We believe it is necessary to look again at crucial issues, such as the relationship between the art critic and curator, the art market and art institutions, the audience and the artist, and art and society. All these factors are interdependent and have totally transformed the conditions for making and exhibiting art, and for communicating it to a public. Art criticism’s crisis of identity and difficulty with value judgment affects the way that we have come to think about its role and function. We need to review some of the artistic, economic, social and technological factors that have contributed to this condition.
