The New Art Examiner's purpose is to examine the current moment in visual and performance art. A prime purpose is to assist in the revival of genuine art criticism and to put  the artist above the market at  the center of the artistic enterprise. We seek to cover the local exhibition scene and give voice to artists, those known and yet-to-be-discovered and to review the art press.

We will probe the forces, domestic and international, shaping our culture, including the agencies of patronage which shape the  transmission of culture such as museums, schools, dealers and collectors. We look for new, experimental efforts in the production of art. Above all, we are committed to perpetuating the legacy of NAE co-founders, Jane Addams Allen and Derek Guthrie in maintaining an open forum for the serious discussion of issues in the arts.
