Conversations With Walls

a note on this series

First and foremost, any value found in these photographs rests predominantly with the artists whose works are featured, and with the talented people who curated this exhibit at the Whitney Museum of American Art. I usually present the story first and then land at the photograph, which is intended to provide a kind of arrival or unlocking for what you've just read. Given the nature of these stories, though, which were composed as imagined conversations between each artist and viewer, it felt right to lead with the image. And if you find yourself lost in terms of context and associations, the year in which each artwork was created plays a significant role in the conceptual framework for each conversation.
