Sample text

It is this wonderful complexity that we seek to understand. Because what we see when we look at art is not really what is out there. Instead it is a construction we create when perception engages with incoming stimulation: we view an artwork through the nooks and crannies and layers of experience, recollection, and imagination that constitute our being. Those layers are themselves created by our participation in the world, our social trajectories into the institutions and activities, ideas, sentiments, and values that we shape into culture and that also help to shape us.

References to other artists provide perspective for they allow artists to conceptualize who they are and who they are not. In addition to situating an artist’s work relatively, referencing colleagues allows artists to weave themselves into broad, sweeping, or prominent narratives, in­clud­ing those of art world grandeur. In talking about exhibiting with Dimé or collaborating with Mambety, for instance, an artist also engages in acts of self-­fashioning. With claims about shared conceptual and visual affinities, an artist inserts himself or herself into well-­established narratives around the absent artist.

Before going on I need to acknowledge that I have presented only a partial picture.
