The Cipher Crit Salon was created because artists make work that is an attempt to invoke a conversation with the audience, but there is a paucity of venues outside of the academy for that conversation to take place. The agency within an artist's work is multiplied when the issues of the work are engaged, questioned, and validated though public discussion. The Cipher Crit Salon is intended to strengthen the dialog surrounding art and the creative process by disseminating the concerns of the artist through public discourse.
