Kenneth Baker

The Role of Art Critic in The Civil Dialog About Art Is To Be a Public Example of An Art Viewer

One of the best-known art writers in the U.S., Kenneth Baker began his career at the Boston Phoenix and has been the resident art critic at the San Francisco Chronicle since 1983. He covers a wide range of contemporary and historical art exhibitions, writing on the Max Beckmann retrospective at the Museum of Modern Art in New York and the "Illuminating the Renaissance" show of manuscripts at the Getty (for example) along with art events of more local interest. He is the author of Minimalism: Art of Circumstance (Abbeville, 1989) as well as many catalogue essays. Artist Oriane Stender talked with Baker in San Francisco's Mission District on Aug. 19, 2003.
