Finally, an art magazine has addressed the varied world of art blogging and PORT was lucky enough to be included in a wide-ranging roundatable discussion put together by Peter Plagens
. Besides myself, the cogent voices of gallerist Edward Winkleman, Seattle PI critic Regina Hackett, Libby Rosof and Roberta Fallon of Philly as well as that art blogging machine Tyler Green are present (who once again had the scoop
). It is a great article and I'm pretty proud of everyone involved as it presents a whole new world of cultural coverage to some who might not already be aware. I think it also dispells a lot of myths and persues the potential of the format. Most of the panelists seemed to go out of their way to point out other worthy sites as well, sure the internet is full of uninformed word twaddle but it's also an exciting opportunity to be siezed upon.
Stay tuned, PORT and PNCA are teaming up to do a related panel discussion in November. The discussion will expand the already rather content-rich article with bloggers from outside Portland. It's also an opportunity to hear the voices of few other PORT writers as well (in this case the hyper-eloquent Amy Bernstein). PORT is a group effort to be sure and I'm certain the Q&A segment will be very lively.
I thought you might want to know that I have a post discussing Plagen's article on my blog today.
