Each fair stars gathers six art world industry leaders to ensure that each fair is fresh and unique, with the highest level of exhibitors from the contemporary art scene. In preparation for our Los Angeles fair in February, we call upon the talent of both local and international critics, curators, and artists to make up our LA 2020 Selection Committee. Artists should note that artist applications are open through November 10. As application deadline nears, we talked to one of our jurors, PETER FRANK, LA Art Critic and Curator, about differences between art writing and criticism, critics ' place in today's Art World, and where LA fits in today's contemporary scene. How do you get into the art world? What is your background? I 'm a NYC native, grew up in the Jersey Burbs, and came back to Manhattan to attend college and establish myself as a professional Critic. Already passionate about music as a pre - teen, art class I was assigned to in 7 grade turned from chore to revelation when it introduced me to modern artists such as Klee, Kandinsky, and Miro. I m looking at what I 've been listening to, it occurred to me. I started going to NY Museums and then commercial galleries at peak time of cultural ferment in New York. I never much wanted to make art so much as look at and write about it. But my early interest in Fluxus and then conceptual art and NY Poetry scene make words artistic elements for me. Already knew to NY galleries by the time I moved back into the City, I wrote reviews for various Columbia University newspapers. By time I got my MA in Art History, I was Art Critic for SoHo Weekly News, and wrote later for Village Voice, also contributing to Art News, Art in America, and various other Art publications. Throughout the 70s, I covered waterfront, which made me curatorially useful to Documenta in Germany, for instance. Then, at age 30, I get to curate survey show of Contemporary American Art for Guggenheim Museum. Tiring of the commercialization of Art World and indeed life in NY during the 80s, I moved to LA at the end of 1987, where I 've lived and worked since. What do you see the role of critic in today's art market? Critics function first and foremost as articulators of engage response, that is, as mouthpieces for an audience committed to practice, discourse, and display of art. We can also impact on broader public taste and even market trends, but our raison d etre is to expand and leaven awareness among those professionally and / or passionately involved with art. It's not necessarily an elite readership, but it is a self - select one: our readers need to be with and know about art. What's difference between an art writer and a critic? Art writers write about art news, most particularly about ways the World of Art interacts with and impacts the wider world.
