Spaces for criticism : shifts in contemporary art discourses

"Is art criticism losing ground, because of the Internet and art blogs? Do people still consider the authoritative art critic (in newspapers, magazines) as their most important source to decide and filter what they want to see, read and listen to? Most recent discussions revolve around the question 'what is art criticism?' ; this book explores the question: 'Where is art criticism?'. It looks at new ways and new spaces where art critics might interact with the public, works of art, artists and scholars. This book suggests criticism has shifted to different places and different stages: a 'displacement', not only with regard to media (from journalism to blogs, catalogues, and such), but also a displacement in the geographical and institutional sense."--Page 4 of cover
