Paddy Johnson is the founding Editor of Art F City (formerly Art Fag City) and the Arts Editor for the L Magazine. In addition to her work on the blog, she has been published in magazines such as New York Magazine, The Economist, and The Guardian and linked to by publications such as The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and The Awl.
The Ethics of Critique pulls from Johnson’s unique experience as the founding editor of an esteemed art criticism blog. Due to Art F City being supported by the very community it critiques, conflicts of interest are inevitable. In her lecture, Johnson poses a series of scenarios where the collision of expectations in a critique setting range from clear to murky, and explain how the blog responds to these conflicts.
