34 Artworks I Would Like to Acquire from NADA Miami 2017

I’m no great Grateful Dead fan, but the this labor of love by Mark A. Rodriguez at Los Angeles gallery Park View makes me want to become one: the study racks contain castles with thousands of hours of recordings of shows by the storied band. It’s titled 2nd Gen (2017), meaning the tapes have been taped from others tapes that have circulated among Deadheads. It’s a portrait of cultural devotion—or, one might say, obsession—and of how culture is preserved and spread.
