Cats ... Opium for the Masses ... Are You at Risk?

When The Art Assignment featured Nina Katchadourian, she was sifting through the personal library of William S. Burroughs to create the Kansas Cut-Up series in her Sorted Books project (more sorted books: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9; Katchadourian previously: 1 2 3). A follow-up episode very briefly displayed viewer responses. There have been many more assignment / response episodes--most recently, a challenge from Houston artist Jamal Cyrus (see especially Pride Record findings--Tokyo, 2005-2016) to visually suggest an impossible sound--but The Art Assignment is refocusing on its Art Trips and The Case For series.

If any of you stay at my house, pull books off the shelf, and arrange them in a way to tell a story, it is quite likely my wife will think my kids got into them, didn't put them away, and she'll have them back on the shelf thirty seconds later and my kids will have a few cleaning assignments.

Oh, that's the lady that did the toilet paper Flemish portraits. Off to watch more.

Those Flemish portraits are great, with just a touch of this.
