I’m on a bit of an international kick right now.
Last fall I caught wind of the Blanton’s co-hosting an international (specifically latin american) artist in residence program and heard Matheus Rocha Pitta talk ’bout his work. He’s coming back for another presentation later this month.
This year at Viewpoint, I was introduced to Wade Saunders by my ex-professor Margo Sawyer. He lives and works in Paris, France and his presentation was just a run through of a list of sculptors (as opposed to Katy Seigel’s lecture). I asked for some spelling corrections so I could look up the artists when I got home and the man rewrites my list with artists’ names and their gallery. Not only that, he then offers his Powerpoint presentation!

I also got to see the extra two artists that didn’t make it into his presentation:
I’ve been adding new links. Two of which look at art beyond our US borders:
I’ll tell you ’bout what I sees.
