Critique Groups

Baxter St’s Critique Groups focus on the evaluation of emerging lens-based artists’ work in a small-group setting. These groups serve the needs and aspirations of Baxter St members who represent a diversity of experience and identity, helping them strengthen their practice and advance their careers. 

The critique groups reflect Baxter St’s founding principle to support emerging underrepresented artists and to foster dialogues between peers and professionals around the medium of photography. The Groups’ leaders are central to the program’s success and share readily of their knowledge and expertise. Members gain access to celebrated artists who are masters of their craft, as well as key experts who speak with authority on trends and traditions and who drive the world of museums, galleries, auctions, collectors, and curators.
