Blogger Panel Discussion planned at Red Dot Fair

Art Bloggers @ Red Dot, Sunday, March 30
10:30 to 12:15
Joanne Mattera and I have organized a panel discussion which will soon be included in the Red Dot programming schedule. If the bloggers who join us are anything like their keyboard personas, an interesting discussion should ensue.

Panel Topic: Bloggers and Their Impact in the Art World
There's now more art coverage in the blogosphere than in conventional publications. Do we handle this responsibility with conventional journalistic standards or something that's faster and looser as befits an instantaneous medium? How do we manage the formidable network that has developed around and because of us? Where do we go from here?

Edward Winkleman
• Carol Diehl, Art Vent
C-Monster (Who is she?)
• Paddy Johnson, Art Fag City
• Me (Sharon Butler), Two Coats of Paint
Joanne Mattera will moderate.

Look for the “Art Bloggers @ Red Dot” sign in the lobby to direct you to the conference room.
Leave a comment or send a note (twocoatsofpaint{at} to let us know you're coming, or just drop in. We're looking forward to a lively discussion with all the NYC area bloggers, as well as others in town for the Armory Fair. See you there!

I look forward to this event, its comforting to know art blogging is not an isolating experience, which Ive often times have felt! Thank for organizing this event/website.

I plan to be there...sounds intriguing.

Chris Rywalt said...

I am extremely disappointed, but it doesn't look like I'll be able to make it. Thursday, Friday, and late Sunday, yes. Everything else, no. Too bad, so sad.

Megan McMillan said...

Murray and I will be there.

Anybody know if this will be liveblogged, streamed, or otherwise made available?

No, we'll definitely post after the event, but no plans in place for live coverage. Feel free to bring your laptops--I'm sure the hotel has wireless.
