A new book has come out by Matti Bunzel In Search of a Lost Avant-Garde, an anthropologist’s examination of the tensions between museum curators and donors at Chicago’s Museum of Contemporary Art. Guess who wins?
This is an interesting article in the New York Times about the Galapagos Art Center, moving from Williamsburg, Brooklyn to Detroit. Take note of the 2016 Biennial.
I am working on putting together this blog so that we can all keep in touch about our future activities. It has been a privilege to get to know you all (at least a little) and I’m looking forward to reading more about what you are doing. In this blog you can share news about your shows, residencies, successes in the studio–really, anything about your art practice that will be of interest to your fellow artists in the region.
The blog is in the developing stages, so I have only the most rudimentary elements right now. I would like to add a gallery of works by artists, and I will be contacting you by e-mail to get some images. All artists opting into this blog will be listed as “authors” and you may post at will. If you are interested in dipping your toes into the blogosphere, this is an opportunity!
