Art Lecture: Art, Media and the Digital Dumpster Fire

Date:
February 28, 2019
Category:
Fine Arts
Location:
Dishman Art Museum & Lecture Hall
Details:

In this lecture, Rainey Knudson, founder of the Texas online art magazine Glasstire, tells the story of Glasstire from its origin as a scrappy startup in 2000, to becoming a leading art journal nationally. She includes the juicy bits: brushes with libel law, scrapes with art dealers and artists and at least one death threat. She considers how online journalism and the role of the critic have changed, and the lessons she's learned from following Glasstire's tagline, Go See Some Art.

A reception will be held prior in the Dishman Art Museum beginning at 5:30 p.m. Admission to this lecture is free and open to the public.
