culturehall feature 46: YESTERDAY, TODAY AND TOMORROW - curated by Matt Olson
Inspired by an exceptional blog about architecture, art, design and culture called ROLU BLOG, David Andrew Frey and I invited its Minneapolis-based author, Matt Olson, to curate our current Feature Issue 46. Matt examines the role of the Internet in his experience of contemporary art and highlights the work of culturehall artists Emilie Halpern, Maryanne Casasanta, David Horvitz and Sam Falls.
Matt's design studio, ROLU, recently commissioned art/design duo ASDF to create a call and answer photography project, Scattered Light, which proposed a series of assignments asking artists to attempt to reacquaint the viewer to his/her surrounding environment and introduce another way of seeing and interpreting the things around them.
