In 2012, I started writing for Hyperallergic, an online “forum for serious, playful and radical thinking about art in the world today.” The writing there covers many aspects of the arts, from the business/economics of it to traditional reviews, and it isn’t limited by artistic genre, though it definitely leans more toward the visual arts.
You can view the complete archive of my writing for Hyperallergic by clicking here.
Below is a selection of my work for Hyperallergic:
