The New Museum and Badlands Unlimited invite you to a book launch and panel discussion on the occasion of «Craig Owens: Portrait of a Young Critic» (Badlands Unlimited, 2018), by Lyn Blumenthal and Kate Horsfield, with an introduction by novelist Lynne Tillman. The conversation will be moderated by Paul Chan and Johanna Burton, and panelists include Thomas Beard, Kate Horsfield, and Lynne Tillman.

In 1984, the art critic and theorist Craig Owens (1950–90) gave a wide-ranging interview to Lyn Blumenthal and Kate Horsfield for their video series «On Art and Artists.» At once personal, political, and forward-thinking, Owens recounts his experiences with Rosalind Krauss, the founding of the journal «October,» and the Pictures Generation of artists and critics, and offers insights into his own struggles grappling with the aesthetic and political contradictions haunting contemporary art—as relevant now as they were then. «Craig Owens: Portrait of a Young Critic» presents a newly edited and updated version of this interview, telling the intimate story of one of the most compelling minds in art theory and criticism.
