The Blue Review is relatively new, offering great interviews with artists whom I adore, and providing erudite--and often hilarious--reviews and art criticism. In an age where writing about art proves as exciting as watching paint dry, the Blue Review proves relevant, fresh, and fascinating. It's co-founded by Dina Brodsky and Trek Lexington, whose work I admire greatly.
"Transmogrification" is a group art exhibition running from June 21st through July 16th in Long Island City, New York. Curated by Tun Myaing and Panos Papamichael, it's a riveting and original show: focusing on themes of transformation, it's influenced by the shifting dynamics of its neighborhood, and the work stitches together a conversation about change and evolution.
Needless to say, I was thrilled to write my first formal art exhibition review of "Transmogrification" for the Blue Review, specifically. It was both challenging and satisfying, undoing the knots of my impressions of the show, which was so intelligently curated by Myaing and Papamichael. It's an exciting venue for me to explore, and I loved participating in the show's periphery through this review.
I'm even more excited to become a recurring contributor to the Blue Review, with more writing and reviews on the way. This is ideal for me, as I get to merge my two greatest interests (besides gin, fried food, and airplanes): visual art and writing.
