The Critic as Artist: Simon Palfrey and Mieke Bal

In coming months, the UQ Art Museum is pleased to present two film works, drawn from large-scale multimedia installations, that explore new possibilities in literary and art criticism. Creative, collaborative, and highly experimental, Simon Palfrey’s Demons Land: a poem come true (2016) and Mieke Bal’s Reasonable Doubt (2015) take up the traditional tasks of arts criticism and scholarship – to interpret and evaluate the aesthetic and intellectual objects of the past – while also reimagining the critic as artist.
