With a focus on New York, ART F CITY serves up regular hard nosed art criticism that is just that, not limp and shallow art description. If you live as far away from the action as I do, it's good to know what's going on in the heart of things.
AFC say this about themselves: Art F City creates and archives critical discourse, and commissions ambitious artist projects. Through a daily mix of blunt criticism, commentary and community-minded journalism, we add an unparalleled dosage of purposeful opinion to the contemporary art community.
Art is without a public purpose if it is not tested and understood. To this end, Art F City provides a moderated public forum across comment threads, artist essays, and round-table criticism. Our nine-year archives provide an extensive historical record of that discourse. By encouraging a critical and informed audience, our public initiatives fill a critical need for all creative makers.
Their today's mailing gives the AFC Best of Everything 2016 list, it's well worth a look. You can do that HERE.
