THE INDEPENDENT VOICE OF THE VISUAL ARTS
The editorial staff of the New Art Examiner regrets our oversight in not including any female art critics in last issue's introduction. Roberta Smith of The New York Times should have been noted, among others. We tried to find any photo of the New Art Examiner's co-founder, Jane Addams Allen, to no avail.
Like many other areas, art criticism has been traditionally dominated by men. But as the contents of our recent issues have shown, that has started to change. We are sure that there are numerous female and non-white male art critics of more than local reputation that should be acknowledged. Therefore, we will be setting up a special page on our website (newartexaminer.org) to list these writers. We call on you, our readers, to help us lift up their voices by adding to this list. For a person you would like to have included, please send us the name, photo (if possible), and a link to a sample of the person’s writing to firstname.lastname@example.org. We would like to have this open-ended list up on our website by early January, 2019.
The Editorial Staff
Update: As of the new year, only one name has been submitted, Lori Waxman, the Chicago Tribune critic. She also writes for Hyperallergic and 4 Column. She was included in the "What Ever Happened to Real Art Criticism" issue in the "What Do Artists and Critics Think?" article.
