sadly, i learned of seth siegelaub through his passing this weekend. his energy and attitude about art and the art world makes me happy… i’m grateful to have encountered it.
i’m currently reading three books: szeemann: with by through because towards despite, the two calvin tomkins books about duchamp… marcel duchamp: the afternoon interviews, and duchamp: a biography (i just finished the calvin tomkins book about rauschenberg off the wall too)…
when i read a bit about seth siegelaub today i noticed this sense of humility and generosity that i’m encountering in all the above. it’s at least as inspiring as their work.
looking forward to learning more.
please enjoy your time and space.
