60 Wrd/min (F Newsmagazine)
"The relationship between the artist and curator is culturally unique in its ability to make or break the career of the former. Relatively little critical attention, however, has been paid to criticism itself. Art historian and critic (and F News alumna) Lori Waxman has attempted to examine this relationship in her performance entitled 60 wrd/min art critic."
