Ekphrasis (notes)

by craigepplin

I’ve recently had an opportunity to give form to ideas about some of my favorite contemporary artists. Writing always helps me organize myself, so I’m uploading a few pages–just notes, really, a few of which have appeared in some incarnation elsewhere–that have helped me think through work by Cyprien Gaillard and Koudlam, Teresa Margolles, Rita Indiana y los Misterios, Francis Alÿs, Tanya Tagaq, and the dance duo Campo. Not all the works are visual, but ekphrasis is the best concept to describe my notes so that’s what I’m calling them.

Here’s the PDF version: ekphrasis.
