The exhibits showcase the work of over thirty USA artists whose common interest is in clarifying artistic discourse through their blogs.
All of the exhibits will take place between November 3, 2007 and January 12, 2008.
A number of artists have entered the blog arena, writing about art and the art world as they participate in it through their visual work. There have always been artists who write about art, and at times their writing has been highly influential; Donald Judd is one name that leaps to mind. As a new art narrative emerges, writers of all stripes – critics, historians, curators and even art bloggers -- will play a large part in shaping, interpreting and defining it.
This exhibition focuses on the work of artists who are active art blog writers. The work you see here emerged in the studio in near-simultaneity with the artist’s written expressions. These twin efforts – art making and blog writing -- sometimes appear to flow together and intertwine beautifully, and at other times almost seem to be in diametric opposition.http://www.diggingpitt.com/events/07-blog-nyc.htm
