Doug DuBois: All the Days and Nights

Amy Stein Photography


2009 was an ass-kicker of the highest order. The year found me traveling, exhibiting, and teaching all over the world, which was great, but it left me precious little time to spend with my husband, few opportunities to focus on my 2009 goals, and almost no extra space to expand my mind with the cultural happenings that have made up my past “Big List of Lists.” So, this year I’m presenting a modest, recession-special list of lists:

1. Top 3 Albums
1. Middle Cyclone, Neko Case
2. Dark Was The Night, Various Artists
3. Sometimes I Wish We Were an Eagle, Bill Callahan

2. Top 2 Exhibitions
1. Robert Frank: Looking In at the Metropolitan Museum of Art
2. All The Days and Nights, Doug Dubois at Higher Pictures

3. Top 4 Places I Visited
1. Reykjavik, Iceland
2. Mexico City, Mexico
3. Aspen, CO
4. Sonoma, CA

4. Top 3 Blogs
1. Horses Think
2. The Frontal Cortex
3. Next Nature

5. Top 1 Goal for 2010
1. Create more time to create

Here’s hoping that all of this year’s pressures will produce some diamonds in 2010.
