Covers & Citations Mastermind, reveal yourself!! [Please]

I have no idea the mastermind behind the Covers & Citations blog but it’s pretty, well, as the young kids say (okay, young kids in the 1980s), RAD! I discovered it looking for Eve Babitz and Marcel Duchamp’s famous chess match photograph and found a bevy of art re-makes/mixes/interpretations. You get the idea. I’m sure there are tons of virtual spots on the internet where you can find such a catalog but this is an easy-to-view and search, minimalist presentation of some famous artworks and predecessors.

Why do I love collections and catalogs?

I love collections and catalogs because they show what’s been done and how it’s been re-done and re-contextualized. It’s far too easy to say art is derivative. Art stems from experiences. Experiences, from artist to artist, are singular and not like the other. In any case, Covers & Citations, whoever you are, thanks for doing this. You may have been around for ages and I just not know it but I’m glad I found you…
