Nat King Cole by participating artist Molly Norris

On June 30, 2008, DC artist and blogger JT Kirkland launched the Artists “Review” Artists Project, an excellent way to encourage online artist collaboration through critical reviews. How it works: participating artists are given a digital image of another artist’s work and the title of the piece. They don’t know the artist’s name, so they can’t do any research before writing a 100-500 word review to be posted online. After this, the artist reviewed has the option to post a short response. The process continues as the original ‘reviewer’ has their own work reviewed by another participating artist.

This is a great opportunity to read insightful and fresh criticism by practicing artists, rather than art historians or critics, without any sort of political or social influence. It is also an opportunity for artists to have their work reviewed and seen. If you would like to participate in this project, please email JT at jtkirkland [at] gmail [dot] com.
