Building on ideas of participatory publishing, The Chart’s 2019 Visiting Critic Lecture Series brings five arts writers and visual arts critics to Maine from June through September for immersive, in-person dialogue and critical engagement with place. Visiting Critics will present public lectures around their research and practice and will also conduct studio and site visits as part of their residency.
The Chart’s Visiting Critic Lecture Series is funded in part by a project grant from the Ellis-Beauregard Foundation.
