Snodgrass, Susan

As an Art in America critic, Snodgrass outlines the process, function and audience of the review, and talks about her relationship with artists and how that impacts her choices as a critic.

“It’s a real art form just trying to describe what you see in exhibition, especially something that is large scale. You have to select key words that are emblematic because you can’t necessarily survey everything that’s happening in the work. The key is getting a good image of the exhibition and the interpretive process.”

An Art Critic for Art in America for 20 years, Snodgrass received a BA from Indiana University in Bloomington and has written for publications such as Art and Auction; Art Papers; C Magazine; Dialogue; New Art Examiner; Sculpture; World Art; The Object of Labor: Art, Cloth and Cultural Production, and WhiteWalls: A Journal of Language and Art.
