Crit Session, Volume 1 is a multimedia installation based on a performance workshop in collaboration with MFA candidates in the art program at Cal State Fullerton, and participating members from the community. This project is centered on the premise known in art practices, most notably in art schools and art programs, as the “crit” or “art critique,” comprised of the student’s peers, professors and advisors conveying insight and directives to the student’s work. Ideally, a student leaves the crit with new understanding of their work, their process, and themselves. But what happens when the student leaves graduate school and the support from the institution is no longer available?
Crit Session, Volume 1 is an ongoing observation and exercise of the dialogue that occurs when the context of the artist’s work is removed from the confines of an art institution, or “art bubble,” and finds its way into the perception of the general public.
