22nd Annual Critics’ Residency Program
ROBERT BERLIND, Critic in Residence, 2007-2008
DEADLINE FOR APPLICATIONS: AUGUST 31, 2007 (Postmarked or delivered)
Maryland Art Place is pleased to announce Robert Berlind as the critic for the 22nd Annual Critics’ Residency Program. A New York based artist and critic, Berlind exhibits his work nationally, and is a frequent contributior to Art in America and The New York Times, among other publications.
The Critics’ Residency program is intended to promote the work of area artists and writers while addressing critical issues about contemporary art. Taking place throughout the course of a year, the program will include studio visits and writers’ workshops led by this year’s critic and will culminate with an exhibition, a catalogue containing critical essays and images of the artwork selected, and a public forum.
Artist and writers’ submissions are due August 31, 2007 and will be reviewed by Berlind in early September. If chosen, participants must be available October 13-14, 2007 when writers will accompany the critic on studio visits to select artwork for the Critics’ Picks exhibition, scheduled for spring 2008. Writers will participate in a workshop during the weekend and throughout the fall will complete their critical writing under the direction of the critic. By late December, writing pieces will be submitted to MAP and will be organized for inclusion in the catalogue.
