The Critical Discourse series will kick off with the Jurors' Shortlist Event. Artists submitted 1,536 entries into one of four categories to be judged by expert jury: 2D, 3D, Time-based, and Installation. A fifth category award will be given to an ArtPrize venue for outstanding curation.
During the Juried Awards Shortlist Event on September 29, the category award jurors will each present and discuss a list of five nominees for their respective awards, challenging perceptions and offering their unique perspectives on the landscape of entries drawn from expertise in their given category. The event will be broadcast live on WOODTV-8.
This program is accessible to members of our deaf and hard-of-hearing community through ASL-English (American Sign Language) interpretation. Reserved seats will be available until 15 minutes before the start of the program.
A new partnership with the Community Media Center and The Rapidian will facilitate further exploration of the 2014 Critical Discourse programming. Additional editorial coverage, radio discussions, and programming rebroadcast events will allow a wider audience to reflect on the ideas and perspectives presented throughout the week.
