Viewlist: Inspiration Information at Minus Space

Viewlist is the brainchild of Matthew Deleget and Rosanna Martinez at the protean and always interesting Minus Space. Here is a brief description of the Viewlist project from minusspace.com:

"Viewlist is MINUS SPACE’s new online project space where we invite artists and others to curate a visual essay of images. Viewlist exhibitions are generally thematic and can include art works spanning various time periods, movements, and geographic locations. Exhibitions may also include ideas and images from disciplines outside of the visual arts."

This month painter Karen Schifano's curatorial contribution to the project is entitled "Bulletin Board: Inspiration Information." Karen contacted a number of artists and asked for photographs of places where they tack up studies, snapshots, printouts, or any other bits of ephemera from which they draw inspiration. The result is fascinating, like getting a peek inside a lot of different's artists spaces, and inside their heads as well.

Special thanks to Matthew, Rosanna, and Karen for including me in this installement.
