The evolving forms of news media have created a new kind of journalist: an expert in the field whose journalistic objectivity is sometimes suspect. What does it mean when artists are also arts journalists?
Visit with four practitioners and share your thoughts about the role of expert opinion, independent opinion, and self-promotion in arts journalism.
Moderated by DC Arts Writing Fellow Jonelle Walker, this panel will feature:
- Lenny Campello – Artist, Art Critic, Art Dealer & Blogger, Daily Campello Art News
- JT Kirkland - Artist & Former Critic
- Jenn Larsen - Ringleader, Connectivity, dog & pony dc & Co-Founder, WeLoveDC.com
- John Stoltenberg - Senior Reviewer and Columnist, DC Metro Theatre Arts & Director of Communications, WSC Avant Bard
