dayoutlast is a record of my direct engagement with mostly contemporary art, mostly Los Angelean.

As this blog has evolved since its 2010 inception, so has my perspective. What I once perceived as central within the investigation was what was central, literally, within the photographic frame that I shared here. While still an important consideration, such thinking has also given way to more peripheral considerations, ones also accompanied occasionally by text (written manifestation of thought) and the oscillations between them. What's missing here are larger unknowns surrounding issues of presentation and representation; the amount of time and space it actually takes to accomplish such first-hand observations; and the quandaries between documentation and interpretation.

Despite my attempt to communicate here with image and text what is essential in some respect about the artwork, neither representation should ever be considered a substitution for the primary viewing experience. Of course, occasionally there are exceptions.

Most of the time, these posts are merely remnants---residual fragments---from my last day out.

dayoutlast Viewers' Choice Top Twelve 2014

The results are in, and you the viewers have determined the twelve most popular dayoutlast art exhibition posts from 2014. The following are the twelve most visited posts last year.  Why twelve, you ask? Twelve because there are twelve months in a year, and there are more or less twelve shows per year at most venues.  So, I wanted to list an amount that better approximates the rhythm of a year's worth of shows. Besides, as far as I'm concerned, an end-of-the-year top twelve is no less arbitrary than the typical top tens.  So, why not? Click the links below to see the full post.

Thanks for another great year!
