Artists I Admire

December 3, 2008

Some artists (and experimental writers) I admire — and who continue to inspire my research and artistic work to some degree — include (in no particular order):

 

Renee Green

Bhanu Kapil Rider

Janet Cardiff

J.R. Carpenter

and Adrian Piper

 

Of course, there are more but this is a good beginning list.  I list these particular (women) artists and writers because I want to use this blog to underscore the compelling + relevant contemporary work going on in the visual arts and literature (and poetry) that might not seem at all connected at first glance but has underlying currents of commonality — red threads, as the Swedes say — that flow through them.  I also want to simply call out some of the artists + writers that inspire me.  Why not?
