A few thoughts about
Zhou Tao’s “Collector(s)”
Reflecting on our recent co-presentation with Reel Asian Film Festival, curator Siya Chen sat down with artist Reena Katz to share a few thoughts on a some of the work in the exhibition.
We had to post this link to ISSUE ZERO after reading the Hito Steyerl critique regarding posting conference lectures online. ISSUE ZERO, while quite short on content at the moment, is a sexy attempt at archiving a live discursive event.
Red Hook Journal
We’re keeping an eye on the Red Hook Journal, the online publishing platform hosted by the Center for Curatorial Studies at Bard College. Aside from noticing a similar design that we’re testing with TPW R&D online (the visible accumulation of connected posts), there’s some great content here.
Foam, the ever evolving and expanding photography organization based in Amsterdam (magazine, museum, blog), celebrated their 10th Anniversary in 2011, marking this achievement with a series of programming under the title: WHAT’S NEXT.

Blog post #3 - Aesthetics of Curating
I missed today’s curatorial open studio hours (due to an unexpected and poorly timed migraine) and am very sorry if anyone came by looking for me to find an empty desk. But, I’ll continue to be in the gallery next week, working on how to extend some of the questions that were raised at the first “Coming to Encounter” and Gallery TPW R&D event, a panel discussion on "Unshowable Photographs."
