My review of Primero la Caja, Pablo Guardiola’s solo show at Galería de la Raza, has been published on ArtPractical.com. The current issue, Work(er), includes an interview with David Ireland, a review of the triennial exhibition at the Int’l Center for Photography, and reviews of local shows.
Art Practical is a much-needed site for Bay Area art criticism. It is forged from three grassroots, artist-led initiatives — Shotgun Review, Happenstand, and Talking Cure quarterly — that emerged as direct responses to the Bay Area’s narrow art reportage. Especially after the folding of Artweek magazine, I think Art Practical’s energy, vision and commitment to excellence will be a meaningful presence in the Bay Area art community.
