Moment to Moment
My pals (and forthcoming authors!) Jonn Herschend and Will Rogan of The Thing Quarterly have teamed up to do an interesting project with Levi's Made and Crafted. Called Moment to Moment, and based on Dan Graham's work from the 1960s--where he bought advertising space and used it as a display space for art--this project commissions artists and writers to create new work to be posted up in public places in various cities, as well as online, and in a specially printed newspaper. I haven't seen any of the San Fransisco installations yet, but good photos of them are available on the project site, and I caught a glimpse of the quite fab paper this morning. The artist roster so far (the project is ongoing) is really great; no less than one would expect from the powerful curatorial brains of The Thing guys. So here are a few of my favorite pieces for your Art Friday enjoyment.
