Biographical Historical Note

New Art Examiner was a Chicago-based art magazine founded in 1973 "to examine the definition and transmission of culture in our society; the decision-making processes within museums, schools, and the agencies of patronage which determine the manner in which culture shall be transmitted; the value systems which presently influence the making of art as well as its study in exhibitions and books; and, in particular, the interaction of these factors within the visual arts milieu." New Art Examiner ceased publication with its May/June 2002 issue.
