[VIDEO] Right after watching the Critical Discourse panelists praise and critique finalist works, these respondents stopped to share their own insights and learning. This time, the panelists also shared their insights on the experience of ArtPrize and why criticism is an important part of the event.

Monday night's Critical Discourse panel- Scott Stulen, Paddy Johnson and Miranda Lash- analyzed the top selections by both jurors and the public vote. With sometimes brutal honesty, they shared what worked for them in the pieces as well as where they saw need for improvement. Directly following the event, the public was invited to respond to their thoughts and the event itself. This time, all three panelists also joined the discussion, sharing what their experience of visiting ArtPrize was like, why they find critical analysis of art important and how important that discussion can be.

This video is a collection of responses to the Critical Discourse: Why These Finalists? Part 1 (3-D, Time-Based) event on Monday, October 6. 

Immediately following the program, two response stations were available for anyone to step in front of the camera and respond to anything discussed by the panelists. Whether in agreement or disagreement, all voices were welcomed to share their thoughts.

The response stations will continue to be available at each Critical Discourse event, and broadcast here on The Rapidian the following day.
