It is very meta to write about a public discussion of the role that writing about art has had on the development of art, but here we are with Contemporary Art Journalism Then & Now on Thursday, April 25 at 7pm at 516 ARTS (516 Central SW). As part of the exhibit In Our Own Backyard, 516 ARTS continues to reflect on the evolution and dissemination of contemporary art in Albuquerque from the 1980s to the present. Lauren Tresp, publisher of The Magazine Santa Fe, and Bill Peterson, former publisher of Artspace Magazine, will join moderator Jordan Eddy, director of Santa Fe’s Form & Concept in an examination of where art journalism was, and where it is going. This all-ages event is free and open to the public. For more information see 516arts.org.
