For most of 2012, Shelley Rice was the “Invited Blogger” for the online magazine of Paris’ contemporary art museum Jeu de Paume. Pronounced with a funky American accent, the museum’s name sounds like jus de pomme: apple juice. Since the blog was based in New York City but published in Paris, “Apple Juice” became its in-house nickname. A veteran of the Downtown NY Scene of the 1970s and 1980s, Rice wrote columns for the Village Voice, the Soho Weekly News, and Artforum. She’ll discuss the similarities and differences, pros and cons, high points and low of her various forays into arts journalism.
