In this current historical period in which artists are seemingly unencumbered by pre-existing standards, definitions, and measures of success, who defines “good” art? How do the vast array of approaches challenge those who are called upon to evaluate art—critics, curators, editors, and audiences? What does it mean to create and appreciate art today? This forum, copresented by the Walker and the 2005–2006 Hamline Dialogues Series, examines these questions with panelists Roslye B. Ultan, Hamline University art history professor; Reggie Prim, Walker community programs coordinator; Yuri Arajs, director/curator of Outsiders & Others Gallery; and Ta-Coumba Aiken, artist/muralist/educator.
