Toyin Odutola’s GIF An Undoing (2014) in all of its glory. See the individual drawings on her website. 

And if you haven’t seen it yet, watch her Art Assignment, and then make your own GIF and post it online with #theartassignment. And subscribe!

I could watch this for hours. (That might be a slight exaggeration, but you know what I mean. Tangential question: How long qualifies as “for hours” on the internet?)

I’m sad to be leaving the IMA, but thrilled to announce my new project: THE ART ASSIGNMENT. It’s a video series produced by PBS Digital Studios that will focus on the creative process and the act of making, and I’ll be the curator and host of it.

While the videos will live on PBS and YouTube, we’ll be using tumblr a lot, too, and will encourage you to upload your executions of various art assignments here, so please follow The Art Assignment on tumblr

I’m really looking forward to making this a great project, and to sharing it with you in a few short months.
