An editor and critic, Foumberg provides insight into the kind of artwork a critic will review and in which type of venue, and also outlines the different categories of art writing that have an impact on an artist’s career.
“I do like to support emerging artists and write about their shows, but I also like to write about the same artists over and over again, because I like to see how they transform and develop. I believe that the same critical attention is just as important perhaps, as an artist’s first review.”
Jason Foumberg is Art Editor and columnist at Chicago’s Newcity magazine, contributes to artists’ catalogs, and writes freelance criticism for Frieze. Foumberg also works at the Art Institute of Chicago.
