International Arts Weblog

Art Daily reported on a very interesting project called International Art Blog, which will be online until October 13, sponsored by the Centre of Attention in London. I spent some time surfing the site, featuring reports from bloggers in Berlin, Moscow, London, Tehran, New York, Los Angeles, Lyon, San Francisco, Chicago, Brooklyn, Milan, Tokyo. Interested yet? The way they describe their activity is as a "network of operatives . . . using the power of digital technology to survey the art scenes from across the world . . . to provide an alternative version of events and to challenge the hegemony of those who persist in setting our agenda." That freedom is one of the blogosphere's greatest strengths. I'll be reading.
