The Artist as Institution

I wrote a short review for Printeresting, on institutional critique and Natasha Pestich's poster show (at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts) documenting the fictional career of Jan Xylander: 

The Artist as Institution: Natasha Pestich is Jan Xylander’s Personal PR Machine.

Proud to be involved with the Printeresting guys—they recently were awarded an arts writing Creative Capital grant from the Warhol Foundation!

2.) ::: ::: ::: ::: ::: ::: ::: ::: ::: ::: ::: ::: :::  [Red Lightbulbs #5

3.) "Your Personal Panopticon: An Interview with Christopher Meerdo" [The California Printeresting Printmaker]

4.) Oxford once, Cambridge twice. Venice for the Biennale. Paris next week (mainly for this). Then Ohio. Then, further secret adventures with compatriots await.

5.) It has been collage. Newspaper. Yet. Lately, my thoughts tend toward wallpaper.
