Sorry this event has been and gone

All Ages

Critics occupy an uncomfortable position, often finding themselves in the firing line from all sides: too harsh, too fawning, not constructive enough. But just what is the job of a critic? What value do they add? And what makes a good or a bad critic? International Shakespeare critic Peter Holland and New Zealand art critic Wystan Curnow front up for a discussion with Rosabel Tan, editor of the NZ online magazine The Pantograph Punch, about the place of the critic in the cultural conversation.
