Since finishing her MFA at OCAD U in 2010, Sky Goodden has quickly emerged as one of the most influential art critics and editors working in Canada today. As the Editorial Resident at Canadian Art magazine, and then as the inaugural editor of the website BLOUIN ARTINFO Canada, Ms. Goodden not only raised the level of dialogue about art in Canada, but also placed Canadian artists and writers in conversation with their international peers. In October 2014, Ms. Goodden founded the online publication Momus an international online art publication that promotes art writing and journalism, and stresses a return to art criticism. Momus has garnered international notice and acclaim, with mentions in Frieze, e-flux, The New Inquiry, LA Times, and the College Art Association. Readership has grown steadily and the site has received more than 500,000 readers since its launch. “In addition to her work on Momus, Ms. Goodden is an active member of the arts community, organizing and participating regularly in panels and round-table discussions. She also writes regularly for Modern Painters, Art and Auction, Canadian Art, The National Post, Art21, artnet News, and C Magazine. “Sky Goodden’s entrepreneurial nature has not only moved her to truly affect the conversation about contemporary art in Canada and beyond; she has been moved to provide opportunity to others and has in the course blazed an influential trail.
