Ben Davis on John Berger and Art as a Status Symbol

Ben Davis talk

In conjunction with our Art Writers Mentorship Program, Ben Davis gave a talk on February 23 at Atlanta Contemporary. The national art critic for Artnet News, Davis spoke about the influence the late critic John Berger had on his own thinking, the importance of socially relevant art, and how art has become a status symbol. Audience members challenged him in a lively Q&A after his talk. [Davis takes the podium at 06:20.]
