Author, critic, columnist and pianist, Michael Kimmelman is the architecture critic for The New York Times and has written on issues of public housing, public space, infrastructure, community development and social responsibility. Prior to taking on this role, Kimmelman served as the NY Times‘ chief art critic. His must-read work Portraits: Talking with Artists at the Met, the Modern, the Louvre and Elsewhere, published in 1998, included a visit to the Metropolitan Museum of Art with a young (70 something) Wayne Thiebaud who observed “As a viewer, you’ve got to participate bodily when you look at a painting. It has to do with empathy.” In this presentation, the author reflects on Portraits, his current work, and what artists can teach us about being in the world.
