Support Hyperallergic’s independent arts journalism.

In this age of democratized media, what is the role of the professional art critic? Is virality killing or cultivating new audiences for the arts? How is the web changing the way artists tell stories or expand their practices — or how we think about art? The Superscript conference convenes a diverse array of writers, editors, artists, curators, and theorists to address questions around online art publishing’s present and possible futures.

Superscript: Arts Journalism and Criticism in a Digital Age
May 28–30
A conference co-presented by the Walker Art Center and Mn Artists
