Why Don’t Artbooks Rate Review?
Saturday, September 29
Join Aperture at the NY Art Book Fair for a panel moderated by Lesley A. Martin, publisher of the recently launched journal, The PhotoBook Review, with Sharon Gallagher, President and Publisher of ARTBOOK | D.A.P, and Alberto Mobilio, Co-editor of Bookforum. The dearth of public commentary on photo- and art books and the scant attention paid to art writing can be disheartening. There’s a “Best American Writing on Mathematics” series but none for art? These two blindspots in mainstream cultural commentary are the topics under discussion on this panel.
