What’s Wrong With This Picture? is the first in a daylong symposium consisting of three panels organized by Carlo McCormick. McCormick hand selected the moderators for their affiliations as senior editors at key publications that deal with the topics, panelists were chosen for their work as cultural producers.  In the words of organizer Carlo McCormick, What’s Wrong With This Picture is about “the unholy trinity of what mainstream America has always vilified about youth culture.  In this case the intention is to have a conversation with three people who are in some form of cultural production. For me, it's a way that we can address some of the political-social-religious issues tearing us apart in a less heated context of the arts.”
 
The Purpose & Function of Art in the 21st Century, will be a quarterly series of events, panels, discussions and performances that address critical issues in the diverse communities of the contemporary art world.  Each event will be organized by different curators, critics and cultural producers, who will determine the themes and the format, giving each program a unique perspective. The second event in this series will be organized by Sarah Lewis, Curatorial Assistant in the Photography Department at The Museum of Modern Art.
 
Carlo McCormick is a pop culture critic and curator living in NYC.  He is the author of numerous books on contemporary art, and has lectured extensively at universities in the US and Europe.  His writing has appeared in Art in America, Artforum, High Times, Spin, Vice and countless other magazines.  He has curated exhibitions for the Bronx Museum of Art, New York University, the Queens Museum of Art and the Woodstock Center for Photography.  McCormick is Senior Editor of Paper magazine.
