Pt. 1/n...

Sanchez investigates the reconstitution of the image through adaptations to software and hardware, claiming that galleries/artists shift their production to accommodate the format of mobile screens. Sanchez writes about exhibitions that he hasn’t visited—viewing them only on Contemporary Art Daily—upending polite ekphrasis. His analysis is fully committed to art’s reception, relocating the discourse from creation to the networks of distribution. He haunts us with our inevitable de-subjectivisation: How do you craft discourse about a work that appeals to the anxiety of the scroll, truncating the structures that undergird prestige and judgment? Resulting works are addressed to a platform, not aesthetic subjects.
