Glitching our Expectations

(8) postglitch_tumblr

After many years of authoring texts and sending them off on their merry way into the “academic ether,” I have taken the plunge to join forces with the discontents of Hyperallergic to disseminate my writing into the public sphere: Glitch Expectations: A Conversation with Jon Cates is now live.

If art is about communication, then art writing should initiate dialogue and action, a vehicle for the engagement of ideas and criticism: not only instruments for peer-reviewed checklists that satisfy the insatiable appetite of tenure committees. Art criticism should be a living, breathing, form of social engagement (which is why I also write this blog): so I invite everyone to immerse themselves in the glitchy world of Jon Cates and activate the conversation.

  1. i like what jon cates is doing, which in its own way compares with the way i explore poetry (except i’m attracted to the opposite of fast-and-furious but that only adds to significance as i see tension and boundaries as where the fault lines glitch) good interview

  2. Thanks Mab for your comment. You are right, there is a wonderful spontaneity to Jon’s process that embraces rather than rejects the “mistakes” and “errors.”
