BOOKMARKS are short reading lists recommended by artists and arts professionals in and around Atlanta. It is our hopes that these links to further readings will help support an outward focus, fostering broader conversations around visual culture in today’s society.
This month we spoke with Louise Shaw, museum curator at the David J. Spencer CDC Museum:
post is a site for encounters between the established and experimental, the historical and emerging, the local and global, the scholarly and artistic. An online journal, archive, exhibition space, and open forum that takes advantage of the nonhierarchical nature of the Internet, post seeks to spark in-depth explorations of the ways in which modernism is being redefined. The site’s contents are intended to build nuanced understandings of the histories that shape the practices of artists and institutions today. As a networked platform, post aims to provide an alternative to the model of a unified art historical narrative.
2. Southern Spaces is a really smart on-line interdisciplinary journal “about regions, places, and cultures of the U.S. South and their global connections” that comes out of Emory University.
4. The Morbid Anatomy blog, which surveys “the interstices of art, medicine, death and culture,” is the brainchild of Joanna Ebenstein. The Morbid Anatomy Library, located on the Gowanus Canal in Brooklyn, is a delightful and quirky place to visit when in New York.
5. Shack/Slum Dwellers International:
I just became acquainted with this amazing “global network of the urban poor” through Design With the Other 90%: CITIES, currently installed at the David J. Sencer CDC Museum. I just signed up for its newsletter.
