CRITICAL PASS is an open forum and critique related to the exhibitions and events presented in Southern Exposure’s gallery show, Address. This email-based dialogue between Bay Area writers, visual critics, artists, and others is posted to this site twice monthly. For this inaugural round of CRITICAL PASS, which spans from January through April 2002, Southern Exposure has invited five participants to respond to the work in the gallery and to one another’s comments. This virtual dialogue develops organically and the trajectory of the conversation is determined by the interests and insights of the participants. The drive behind CRITICAL PASS stems from an interest in leveling the playing field between "professional" art critics and everyday art viewers.
