Stuart Horodner's Top Five 

Atlanta College of Art's new gallery director, Stuart Horodner from Portland, Ore., shares his free-range cultural curiosity in his top five current obsessions.

1) Relational Aesthetics by Nicolas Bourriaud -- A series of essays about how contemporary artists create various "encounters" with the audience. This is similar to my long-standing belief that art is best understood as a verb, not a noun.

2) The Aristocrats -- This film joins The Five Obstructions as the greatest theme and variation exercises since Matisse and the odalisque.

3) "Iron Chef" (Food Network) -- Most late nights I'm glued to "Iron Chef." I can't think of anything more entertaining than two master chefs, a state of the art kitchen, one hour, and a secret ingredient.

4) www.learningtoloveyoumore.com -- This project by Harrell Fletcher and Miranda July is certainly one of the smartest and sweetest uses of the Internet around. I suggest assignment #34. [Make a protest sign and protest.] There's never any shortage of things to be upset about.

5) Atlanta -- Getting to know a new city is wonderful -- including MARTA, a dozen raw oysters for $4 on Tuesday nights at Fontaines, woodworking classes at Highland Hardware, and my new '50s couch from Victory Vintage in Decatur.
