Title: Final Curtain
So we have my senior critique during the opening in front of the entire audience. We, me and you and the faculty critiquing me, then become the performance. We are critiquing our ability to involve the greater public in the decision of good and bad art. We are also critiquing our predisposition towards secrecy.
How loudly do we speak?
Is the audience allowed to chime in?
Where does the discussion begin?
Does this prevent openness?
How does the power dynamic change with the introduction of the audience into the critique?
Should a recording be left as an artifact of the performance?
How does the positioning of the professors in relation to me and the audience affect the ability, comfort, and quality of the critique?
How do we judge the quality of the critique?
Should I vie for full control, guide, or flow with the conversation?
What is the appropriate tone?
