LOS ANGELES — I love road trips, and I love arts communities. So why not combine both? Recently, I took a road trip through the US and visited arts communities with a good friend. We stopped by Kansas City, Missouri, smack dab in the middle of the country. I’d heard of the rapid growth of the art world there but was stunned to see just how developed it really was.
In our efforts to support more DIY projects by the world’s leading and emerging creatives, Hyperallergic is launching a curated Kickstarter page that will feature art-related projects we think are worth your time and money to support.
Earlier this month, I sent out a call for comments on #Rank, a project created by artists William Powhida and Jennifer Dalton, who were the masterminds behind #Class (Winkleman Gallery, February 2010).
The following are the responses we received from across the country and around the world. Some are by event participants, while others from observers (both in Miami and remotely). They represent various perspectives on#Rank (with minimal editing and in no particular order).
Also, tonight there is a post-Miami #Rank discussion (6-9pm) at Winkleman Gallery for those who would like to continue the discussion.
