Dear List,

This series of events looks interesting, in particular in relation to 
the 'curator as editor' debate.

Yours

>  Witte de With presents a program of three symposia, titled Rotterdam 
> Dialogues: Critics, Curators, Artists. Structured to establish a 
> lively platform for debate, they explore the practice of three of the 
> central protagonists of the contemporary art world: the critic, the 
> curator and the artist. Are these still the cultural actors who decide 
> what is made, what is seen, and whether it is any good?
>
>  The art critic will be the subject of the first symposium, to be held 
> on 9, 10 & 11 October 2008. The speakers include an international 
> spectrum of art critics, from as far afield as Manila, New York, 
> Istanbul and Montreal, along with several voices from closer to home. 
> Together they represent a range of media, from glossy art magazines, 
> to online blogs and daily newspapers. Speakers from the world of 
> academia will also be present, along with several artists who write.
