A Year In Shows

I’ve started a Tumblr page which will feature a single photograph of each show I see in 2013. Part diary, part ethnography, part mnemosyne, I’m hoping it reveals visual trends and anomalies in exhibitions over the course of the coming year, and acts as a scrapbook of what’s worth remembering. I’ve created it with some fascinating diaristic practices in mind, such as Tehching Hsieh’s One Year Performances or Laurel Nakadate’s 365 Days: A Catalogue of Tears, and of course with a nod to Aby Warburg’s Mnemosyne. Forging new habits, Iphone at the ready, starts tomorrow!
