This is going to be a strange email, both for me and for you. I have no idea how you’ll respond to me writing you out of the blue like this. So let me start off by assuring you that I am not a creep, a crazy person, or an internet troll.
Ron, I have been following your work for a long time.
This IMG MGMT essay takes hundreds of image files found on Paul’s backups (see if you can spot Dragan Espenschied and Cory Arcangel) and uses them to make fun of Lev Manovich, Rafael Lozano-Hemmer, and art blogs.
IMG MGMT is a semi-annual image-based artist essay series. Today’s invited artists, A.L. Steiner and Z. Drucker, live in New York and Los Angeles respectively. Read the photo essay, take the quiz and share the results!
Here at AFC we’ve often asked ourselves the question, What Does Art Criticism need? According to Roger White and Dushko Petrovich true transformation of the form will involve paywalls, platinum memberships and critiscope experience. Put your art visors on because you’re about to experience ARTSCENTER TALKSOURCE (the proposal).
In response to the growing number of images stored on artist hard drives we’ve decided to publish our IMG MGMT series more frequently! Launching tomorrow, our latest series of image based essays will include contributors, Chris Collins, Paul B. Davis, Sara Ludy, Virginia Overton, RogerWhite + DushkoPetrovich, Z. Drucker + A.L. Steiner, and Tommy White. What’s contained in these essays will mostly remain top secret till the series launch of course but we can tell you that Roger White + Dushko Petrovich promise to e-volutionize art criticism as we know it. That’s happening tomorrow and Thank God for that. I don’t think I could wait another day.
