It’s been a great year thus far! Finished my first year of grad school, slowly but surely working on my programming skills for the Internet Archive Tumblr Residency, working on a book chapter, research for my thesis, and working through some ideas for the art21 Blogger in Residency this month! It’s been extremely busy in the academic and the (freelance) writing sides of my life. To top it off, I’m happy to say I had a piece recently published to the online art magazine Hyperallergic. As the tag line states, it’s an online space/place “sensitive to art & its discontents”. You will certainly find some provocative readings on contemporary art and distinct voices. It’s a pleasure and an honor to have a review published. The piece is about the exhibition WANT.HERE.YOU.NOW showing at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts (YBCA). Check out the exhibit, read the review, and please feel free to comment. I’m definitely interested in your thoughts and observations. I’m supposed to be on vacation at the moment BUT I had to share. 🙂 Thanks again for reading and please let me know your thoughts on the show if you make your way over to YBCA. Cheers!!
