ArtServe Live presents: Culture Convo with Jake Cline- “Everyone is a Critic”
We are living in a thumbs up, Rotten Tomatoes, Michelin Star rated world where respected curated opinions have been reduced to a couple of stars next to a well authored (but totally ignored) review. The elimination of art critics from the Sun Sentinel, New Times, and Miami Herald – amongst others – has left a cultural brain drain in a region where being artistically cutting edge is more than a bragging right – it’s a badge of honor. Who is left to take up the mantle of locally sourced, curated cultural opinion writing? On today’s show, we’ve invited Pulitzer Prize winning journalist and playwright, Jake Cline, to discuss the importance of crafting and defending subjective opinions in the arts – and where to find them. Is there a next generation of art critics or is the future of the arts going to be a one-star experience?
