Amber Esseiva: 2021 AWrI Public Lecture Jul 31, 2021 Zoom

Saturday, July 31, 2021
11:00AM – 12:00PM EST

Burnaway’s signature education program, the Art Writing Incubator (AWrI) will host five, virtual public talks throughout Summer 2021 with Burnaway’s masthead, four guest Mentors, and a keynote lecture. In short, hour-long talks each speaker will explore this year’s AWrI theme, Criticism Amid Crisis as it relates to their respective work as curators, writers, artists, theorists, and musicians. Audience members are invited to stay for a brief Q&A. Following the public component, AWrI students will then join the mentors in a private, intensive workshop.

Each lecture will be hosted virtually via Zoom, is open to the public, and free with registration. All are welcome to attend all five talks, and attendance is required for AWrI students.

For the final lecture of the series, Amber Esseiva, the Associate Curator at The Institute for Contemporary Art and Virginia Commonwealth University (ICA VCU), will explore criticism in the context of a curatorial practice.
