I’m tremendously pleased this morning to welcome our latest cohort of columnist-bloggers to Open Space, as they begin to get started this week:
Renny Pritikin was director of New Langton Arts for more than a decade, chief curator at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, and is currently director and curator of the Nelson Gallery and Fine Art Collection at UC Davis. He’s written a zillion catalogue essays, and is also a poet.
Dodie Bellamy is a novelist, essayist, poet, and teacher. Without giving too much away, I’ll say Dodie will be writing Open Space’s first long-form commission…
Anne Walsh is a visual artist who works with video, performance, audio, photography and text, and she’s already started! with two posts just below this one.
Many of our readers I know are already fans of the great Brecht Andersch, filmmaker and SFMOMA projectionist, who’s been writing about film here at Open Space intermittently since the get-go.
Last, and not even metaphorically ‘not-least’, REBAR. Our four-person group-within-the-group, REBAR is an interdisciplinary studio based here in San Francisco. Operating at the intersection of art, design and activism, their work includes conceptual public art, urban intervention, temporary performance installation, & digital media and print design.
As always, our columnists are writing in an EDITORIAL FREE ZONE. Like you, I just can’t wait to see what they will do. WATCH THIS BLOG.
