Suzanne Boccalatte was on a panel discussion exploring the convoluted relationship between beauty and meaning in contemporary art. Answering the questions: How do we define what is beautiful and is there a place for beauty in critical practice? Does the anti-aesthetic somehow elevate the credibility of the work or is it just ugly?
