Thanks to Thea Liberty Nichols for joining us in April and taking residence on the blog for the third time. Her profiles of artists who work across disciplines or in administrative capacities can be found here.
Next up is Los Angeles-based writer and curator Danielle Sommer. Her writing has been featured in Art in America, Textile, Art Practical, and Landfill Quarterly. For three years Danielle blogged for KQED about visual art, and she currently edits the column “#Hashtags: Viral Thoughts on Art” for the arts website DailyServing. Her recent curatorial projects include The Collectors at Monte Vista Projects, and “If we don’t, remember me” at Little Paper Planes.
Our current theme on the blog is hindsight, which works well with Danielle’s interest in issues of collective memory and time in contemporary sculpture. “I’m really just a nostalgist at heart,” she says. Throughout her residency she will look at new versions of old shows, speculative fiction and its art analogs, and the relationship between longing and touch. Keep up with her on Tumblr, Facebook, and Twitter.
Thrilled to have you with us, Danielle!
