Thanks to Dorota Biczel for her fantastic series of writings on Polish, Peruvian, and Spanish contemporary artists (and Wojnarowicz too). Look out for more from her in the coming months.
Up next is Kevin Buist. Kevin is an artist, writer, and Director of Artist Relations for ArtPrize. He lives and works in Grand Rapids, MI. His work has been shown in numerous group and solo exhibitions. He has written about film for SpoutBlog and co-produced FilmCouch, a Webby-nominated podcast. Before helping launch ArtPrize, he ran small a non-profit gallery.
Since beginning work on ArtPrize, Kevin has been investigating the exchanges and tensions between art, design, and the social web. He and other members of the ArtPrize team track these observations on the ArtPrize Tumblr blog. His artwork can be found on the web at kevinbuist.com and he blogs at The Porcupine School of Poetry.
