BURNAWAY is thrilled to announce an upcoming talk by the well-regarded scholar and critic Dushko Petrovich, a Brooklyn-based artist, writer, editor, and teacher, and the cofounder of the art journal Paper Monument. One of the foremost thinkers on contemporary art, Petrovich is an engaging speaker who delivers critical and incisive perspectives on the art and institutions of our time.
In his talk, “Publishing in the Expended Field,” Petrovich will chronicle his work with n+1, Paper Monument, and now DME, which has published Adjunct Commuter Weekly and will produce his forthcoming titles, The Daily Gentrifier, Privacy Magazine, Object Oriented Ontology Illustrated, and International Slav. The event will take place on February 18 at the Atlanta Contemporary Art Center.
We are honored to have him in Atlanta as part of the BURNAWAY Art Writers Mentorship Program; he will be conducting the day-long workshop on Saturday, February 20. There are only a couple of spots left in our next cycle, which begins on January 23. Click here for more information and to apply!
Born in Quito, Ecuador, Petrovich has written for such periodicals as Bookforum, Slate, Modern Painters, ArtNews, and the BostonGlobe, among many others. For Paper Monument, he has co-edited many publications, including I Like Your Work: Art and Etiquette and Draw It with Your Eyes Closed: The Art of the Art Assignment. From 2013-2015, he chaired the n+1 Foundation’s board of directors. Petrovich currently teaches at Boston University, RISD, and Yale.
Petrovich also guest edited the November/December 2013 issue of Art Papers, which focused on the form of the art magazine itself.
His most recent project, Adjunct Commuter Weekly, made its debut at the ICA Boston this past summer to widespread critical acclaim, including profiles in the Wall Street Journal, the New Yorker, and the Chronicle of Higher Education. His next publication, called The Daily Gentrifier, is forthcoming from DME this spring.
The talk is FREE and open to the public!
