Advanced Critique Group at CEPA


This group is meant for artists with an on-going creative practice that think about their work conceptually and have confidence in responding to other artist’s work in a constructive and helpful manner. 

Whether you’re already working on a project or looking to begin something new, this 8-week advanced critique will provide a safe space for you to develop a photo-based body of work within a supportive community. Each artist will present their work in print or by projection every other session—four times during the course—and will be expected to show new work in each of their critiques. Group discussions will be led by artist Andrea Wenglowskyj, in order to help each participant further their projects through experimentation, research, technical support and goal setting.
