Vince Aletti is a man with incredible taste. He reviews photography exhibitions for the New Yorker’s Goings on About Town section and writes a regular column about photo books for Photograph. He is a contributing editor at Aperture and writes for Artforum and V. His writing contributions are too many to list in terms of awards and prestigious museum curations, but suffice it to say, the mans respected opinion has launched many books with introductions written for Michael Thompson, Ingar Krauss, Mark Cohen, Kohei Yoshiyuki, Ryan McGinley, and Jed Fielding.
Paddle8 is a forward thinking destination online created to examine, understand, and acquire unique artworks. Essentially, Paddle8 is reinventing the notion of a meeting space for collectors, artists, and gallerists on the web. Their monthly guest-curated exhibitions offer a viewpoint into what is interesting and relevant in the minds of today’s leading cultural voices and re-imagine what is possible for experiencing art online.
For example, Paddle8’s Exhibition #02 (which launched July 27th), was curated by Vince Aletti, and was entitled STUFF: Still Life Photography Curated by Vince Aletti. Fear not, the exhibition runs through September 6th so all our readers are welcome to peruse the virtual hallways hand selected by Mr. Aletti and his elegantly discerning mind.
