Kritik/critique: Essays From The J. Elizalde Navarro National Workshop In The Criticism Of The Arts And Humanities, 2009-2012
|Author||Oscar V. Campomanes|
"The exemplary accomplishment of the J. Elizalde Navarro Workshop on Arts Criticism is to take the arts seriously, which the arts deserve unequivocally. First the art engages the mind, then minds engage with one another, then the points and counterpoints, then the weighing and rewriting. With solid mentoring at the helm, this anthology is proof that criticism entails a lot of patience, rigor, research, humility, contemplation, and intellectual audacity. From digital texts to architectural kitsch to problematizing an ideal representation of the indigene in young adult fiction, nothing and everything is sacred terrain here. The works are assured not so much of disapproval or praise, but variegated meanings and implications, which become sharper and more significant as the critics show us histories and contexts and frames, exactly what the artists and the readers themselves need to connect and to dialogue." - Rebecca T. Añonuevo
