Christopher Miles: Form and Context: The Discourse of Art in a Shifting World
Art department lecture series
Christopher Miles is associate professor of art theory and criticism and associate chair of art at California State University, Long Beach. He is recipient of a 2004 Penny McCall Award for his work as a writer/curator, and presently writes for Artforum, Art in America, Flash Art, Flaunt, Frieze and The Los Angeles Times. Miles’ talk will consider the possibility of a critical approach that melds both formalist and contextualist approaches in an effort to deal with broader contexts including changing social, political, critical, market and institutional factors.
