A Panel Discussion with Hermitage Artist Michael Adno on The Value of Long-Form Journalism in Contemporary Art January 18 at Art Center Sarasota Michael Adno’s current exhibit at Art Center Sarasota, “Cracker Politics, The Limit of Colonial Knowledge,” will serve as a focal point for the discussion. (Sarasota, FL) Art Center Sarasota, in partnership with The Hermitage Artist Retreat, presents “The Value of Long-Form Journalism in Contemporary Art,” a panel discussion moderated by Dr. Ann Albritton, professor of contemporary art history at Ringling College of Art and Design. Panelists include the artistMichael Adno; Chris Jones, curator of works on paper at The Ringling; and Michael Wyshock, an artist and professor of fine arts at Ringling College. The event, which is free and open to the public, is January 18, 6:30 p.m., at Art Center Sarasota, 707 N. Tamiami Trail, Sarasota. Seating is limited and an advance reservation is required. For reservations, email sarah@artsarasota.org. For more information about Art Center Sarasota, call 941-365-2032 or visit www.artsarasota.org. In his recent work, Adno studies the blurry lines between history and politics and actual experiences. His work involves working with historians, researchers, and local community members over long periods of time. “The discussion will draw on my exhibition as a departure point to ruminate on the role of long-form journalism and art practices of the 21st century in an increasingly vitriolic political climate where we are seeing diminishing opportunities for those forms of reportage, a backlash against succinct reporting, and a frightening distrust in facts,” says Adno. Adno asks viewers to explore the role sensationalist journalism plays in our perception of reality. Is long-form journalism an endangered species? The discussion will address the role artists and writers serve in contemporary culture. Michael Adno is a Brooklyn-based artist and writer. He is a 2015 Ringling Towers grant recipient, a Fellow at The Hermitage Artist Retreat and a 2017 nominee for the Smithsonian Artist Research Fellowship.
