Art Practical is an online magazine that enriches critical dialogue for the Bay Area visual arts by providing comprehensive analysis of events and exhibitions. The Art Practical website choreographs a coalition of three independent chroniclers of contemporary art and culture—Bad at Sports, Happenstand, and Daily Serving—to create visibility for individual projects and a forum for critical reflection within the broadest possible audience. Art Practical aims to generate pathways of investigation demonstrating a model for visual criticism that is highly conscious of the audience it is serving, as well as the culture it is representing. It includes critical reviews, essays, serial writing, interviews, and an open forum that promotes community participation. Art Practical is also a news source, producing a daily list of exhibition openings, events, lectures and performances.
