Kansas City-based, visual arts writer Blair Schulman talks with Klein Artist Works about the city’s thriving DIY scene, and also discusses his role as an art critic, including how a writer can be integrally involved in his or her art community, maintaining a balanced point of view, and how and why a negative review can be necessary.
“I want to create a critical conversation about someone’s work…and I would like to think that sometimes my writing helps with encouraging further exposure.”
