MFA in Advanced Photographic Practice program at ICP-Bard, so since last September I've started (re)using the analytical and critical part of my brain more than I have in 11+ years!
Needless to say I've had to dust the cobwebs off and discard useless information to make room in my brain's memory bank for all the artists names, artworks, art institutions, art shows that we talk about... but I finally feel like I'm getting into a groove.
Now let me tell you about my lists. My free time is ruled by lists of things to see and read - one such list is books about art. (Perhaps I'll publish these lists as future blog posts?) A book I discovered lately is Lucy Lippard's "Mixed Blessings: New Art In A Multicultural America" published in 1990.
