Let’s consider our relationship with the recent past as it changes into something to ask about, something that’s reducible, relatable, and metaphorical. Let’s consider how it can be found so easily on the walls of a space that has been designed just for the purpose of its understanding. Let’s also consider the objects that we share in time and the ephemeral whimsy that transforms them into something more and different than what they once were. Let’s consider the Top V.

Hey Chicago, submit your events to the Visualist here: http://www.thevisualist.org

Visualist Chicago

The Visualist, www.thevisualist.org, is more than just a list of dates and events on the internet. It's a really long list of dates and events for exhibitions, artist talks, receptions, festivals, panels, performances, readings, fairs, workshops, and curated content all kinds. At its heart the Visualist is really a cursory archive of actions and engagements throughout Chicagoland. In time, this archive will reach back to the Brunswick Building fire of 1989. While creating this image of Chicago's cultural work, the Visualist is also being updated throughout the week to provide as complete and accurate a day-to-day accounting of these activities as is possible.
