You Can Lead A Horse to Water…
Amy Fung’s review of Slim for Edmonton’s VUE weekly came out last Thursday.
Not a great review. It’s not pleasant reading that your work “carr[ies] no weight” and “[is] not deeply informed, and therefore not communicating beyond surface interpretations”, but the reality is that not everyone is going to connect with the work sufficiently to discover meaning beyond face value.
Though the review is negative, I’m more disappointed in the slightly inaccurate way the artwork is described and the manner in which some of the information from the artist talk was perceived and re-mixed.
