Eight Emerging Artists

James Yood

Mr. James Yood will bring to his slide illustrated presentation the combined perspective of an art journal manager and editor, a critic, a teacher and an art historian that promises to give us a very exciting evening. While Mr. Yood works as the Managing and Chicago Editor of the “New Art Examiner” and teaches Art History at Loyola University, he is also working on a doctoral degree in Art History from the University of Chicago from which he has already earned an M.A. A provocative article by Mr. Yood, “An Emerging Cliche” appeared in the December issue of the “New Art Examiner”. In his presentation to us, Mr. Yood will show and discuss the work of eight young artists in the context of the phenomenon of the “Emerging Artists”, and will consider what the designation “emerging” does and does not mean in a contemporary context.
