The gallery will be temporarily transformed into a studio setting for a critical review of their recent work and research. Sketchbooks, google searches, found objects, and other research materials will be laid out on tables for attendees to get an idea of what the artist is thinking when in their studio. Three guest critics, or “critters,” will listen to each artist talk briefly about their work and then critique what they see. A brief Q&A session will be held at the end for attendees to pose their own questions to the artists, further assisting them in their creative process.

This event will be open to the public and streaming live online. Coffee and light snacks will be provided.

Both the artist and the viewer benefit from discussing personal ideas and opinions, and these dialogues are often the catalyst for art making. With this in mind, The Louisville Artists Syndicate is hosting a platform for critical exchange.

The first in a new series of Syndicate projects, “Public Critiques: CRIT at PUBLIC” will present the artwork and research materials of three artists at L.V.A.A.’s PUBLIC Contemporary Art Space on Main Street. The work will be on display for two weeks with a public opening on August 2, the First Friday Trolley Hop. During the exhibition, each artist will have a box for viewers to leave feedback and comments, allowing the public to take part in the artists’ thought process.
