In response to the character assasinations of my past art critique
experiences I can only reiterate what has already been voiced. When I
went to graduate school back in the 60's the norm was an all out assault
of not only your art work but you as a potential artist. I can't tell
you how many times I had felt embarrased by these kinds of comments.I
attended a midwest university in which the final consisted of hanging
your art work on wire clothes lines that were strung around the studio
classroom. We were then told by our professor to leave the classroom and
come back in two hours. When we returned, three by five cards had been
stapled to the art work itself with our grade for the entire semester
scrawled in magic marker on these cards! No explanation or comments
were writen just your letter grade for all to see!This is only one of
several examples of what I consider to be unprofessional and demeaning
tactics which were characterized by this particular time period.
