Issue 2


Criticism is a prickly thing. Negative opinions are often perceived as unruly, threatening to disturb the consistency of an editorial enterprise. But, they are also intellectually, creatively, and ethically essential. Criticism can’t want to be easy; or it risks making even the best art so…I hope to sidestep these musty qualifiers (positive/negative) ascribed to criticism, and the precarity of the critic’s role, by simply being honest.
