Best of January

It’s been an eventful start to 2013, with the release of INPUT #5 Blockhouse and a panel discussion on Art + Crisis. See the follow-up interview between myself and Jonathan Beers of Art-Rated for further elaboration.

Secondly, I’ve seen some great shows that were up late December and early January. There are some highlights below, but you can also click on the images for links to their exhibition pages and for more information on the artists and works. There are a lot of great exhibits up and coming in Chelsea and on the East Side, so be sure to check the blog for more pictures and reviews.
