Some pieces here and there
The intensity and pace of my travels since the start of the year have produced many impressions, but have left me with little to no time to turn those into entries for Sideshows. I shared however some thoughts in Art in America’s Roving Eye column during the month of January, contributing three pieces on what I was looking and thinking about at the time: the first text, Fuel for Design, is about the Cooper Hewitt’s Design with the Other 90%, an inspiring exhibition at the United Nations; another one, Tropical Realism, are impressions from a trip to the Dominican Republic; and the third, The Language of Resistance, reports on a lecture by the art historian Tom McDonough at the Guggenheim Museum in New York. Additionally, some weeks ago, the artist and writer Georgia Kosteros interviewed me for Art21’s web-column Inside the Artist’s Studio, where we exchange thoughts on curatorial field research. It’s nicely illustrated.
