Pull up a chair on ICA’s temporary porch with writer and critic Becky Huff Hunter to explore how art writing and life writing intersect and inform each other. Discover critical, fiction, and nonfiction readings; share your encounters with art and objects; and tell your own personal stories in this four-session spring/summer workshop, which is part of Philadelphia’s New Art Writing Symposium, organized by The St.Claire and The Artblog.
In this session, read passages from Hilton Als’s recent essay on Robert Gober and consider how the personal essay can merge with art criticism. Come prepared to talk and write about an artwork or exhibition.
Sign up for the session that piques your interest, or immerse yourself in all four workshops. After registering, you will receive brief readings and warmup writing exercises. (Please bring a notebook and pencil.)
