I got another opportunity to write about DC artists I like, this time in Capitol File magazine. Featured artists: Robin Rose, Laurel Lukaszewski, and Chris Tousimis. I spent a good amount of time talking to these three but had to condense our great conversations into 75 words each. Not an easy task given how interesting they are and the depth of their work and history.

I also got to interview one of my favorite museum directors ever, Dorothy Kosinski who has been leading The Phillips Collection only since 2008 but has been making quite a splash in the DC art scene. Actually she’s not just one of my fave museum directors, she’s one of my fave arty people ever. She’s really energized the Phillips and I foresee more excellent stuff happening there as she returns the museum to its experimental roots.


Blake Gopnik writes about the “Sacred Made Real” exhibit that recently opened at the National gallery of Art.

Artists: Some really good advice for when someone visits your studio HERE. Hell, it’s good advice for anyone expecting visitors.


Back in December, Pink Line Project brought you “Art Is ___” with WE ARE SCIENCE! at The Phillips Collection. Months later, we find that someone has remixed our remix! We’ve really made it.
