Art Listory: Artspace's Clickiest, Most Addictive (Yet Actually Good for You!) Listicles of 2016
It's finally here...

As 2016 finally, not-so-mercifully ends, we here at Artspace want to take a look back on the highest form of the written word: the listicle. Stop laughing! For better or worse, it's a fixture of 21st-century popular writing, and it displays information clearly and efficiently. Really, we think it's a great form of literary consumption in a society driven to $3 meal replacement drinks developed by the best and brightest of Silicon Valley. Anyway. We've chosen some of our favorite lists we published this year on a range from painting and sculpture to fashion, art history, and a healthy dose of silliness.
