Art21’s New Guest Editor

The closest I'm ever going to come to my 15 minutes of fame … here I am being interviewed last weekend by James Kalm of the Kalm Report. (Photo by Veken Gueyikian)

Starting today, and running through to August 25, I will be filling in for Kelly Shindler as guest editor of the Art21 blog.

Kelly, who has taken a much needed vacation, has entrusted me to guide the Art21 blog through the dog days of August … thanks, Kelly!

I’m probably no stranger to many of you — some of you may remember me for my past contributions to this blog or my brief stint as editor last summer — while others may know me as the editor of Brooklyn-based art blogazine Hyperallergic or my personal blog, but all you really need to know is that I’m passionate about art and online media … which makes the Art21 blog a natural fit.

During these next two weeks, I hope you’ll continue to join us as we publish weekly, monthly and bi-weekly columns devoted to different aspects of the art world, host guest bloggers from around the world, and delve deeper into our Flash Points discussion, “How Do We Experience Art?”

Stay tuned for some great art blogging ahead.
