Where to Go and What to See

It's another quiet week at the galleries, but I wanted to give a shout out to the Young Curators, New Ideas show going up at Bond Street Gallery on Wednesday. It is a simple but insightful premise: To examine where art photography is headed, why not ask some of the young curators who tackle that question daily, mostly on their own online forums including Humble Arts Foundation, Fjord Photo, and I Heart Photograph. While I'm eager to see the images included in the the show, I'm especially impressed by the foresight of organizer Amani Olu (of Made By Brown), who recognizes that today's art photography revolution will be shaped as much by new means of distribution as by the images themselves.
