What is an exhibition review?

Exhibition reviews are an important way of creating active critical discussion, and also of building tomorrow’s art history. Art exhibition reviews serve two purposes: (1) to tell readers who haven’t seen the exhibition a little about it so they can consider going, and (2) to document and critique the activities of a city’s art world. 

Exhibition reviews are excellent sources for researching emerging artists who are not yet represented in scholarly literature as well as established artists in order to gain insight into the reception of their work over time.
