... Lori Waxman, a regular freelance critic for the Chicago Tribune, a frequent writer for publications such as Artform and an art historian, not only writes tight and serious reviews, she puts herself out there like an artist and does it in a gallery space. She writes live, in-person reviews while artists wait for the results. Each piece is completed in 25 minutes or less, signed like a work of art might be and given free of charge.
Her "60 wrd/min art critic" project brings the looking at art and writing about it together and into the open, in a sort of wonderfully confusing reversal of roles between the artist and critic.
This exercise in short-form criticism is a gutsy and generous project, an artwork unto itself. I am sort of amazed by it. Waxman will perform “60 wrd/min art critic” at Inova, 2155 N. Prospect Ave., for three days, Friday through Sunday from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. and 2:30 to 5 p.m. each day. Artists can make appointments by firstname.lastname@example.org. Walk-in hours will be Sunday from 2:30 to 5 p.m.
