…might be good is an Austin-based contemporary art e-journal that reaches over 8,000 international readers each month. Understanding Austin as one micro-center within a larger network of art communities worldwide, …might be good provides a platform for thoughtful dialogue about artistic production and ideas. Every two weeks, the publication generates reviews, interviews and other features in response to noteworthy happenings near and far.
…might be good began in 2003 as a short email newsletter for the Austin art community. The newsletter’s name said it all: an occasional email about upcoming events that might be good… or might not. At the time, the newsletter served the crucial purpose of informing a growing, yet still disjointed, art community about lectures, events and exhibitions of interest. In addition to its co-founders Laurence Miller and Regine Basha, Dave Bryant, Mayumi Hirano and Roy Stanfield were indispensable to …might be good during the early years.
Under the direction of Caitlin Haskell, a new editor with a big vision, …might be good began publishing short, “lively and straight-shooting” visual art reviews in 2005. Risa Puleo soon joined Haskell at …might be good and together, they continued to develop its spunky, smart character and the breadth and depth of its coverage.
In late 2007, …might be good’s editor, Claire Ruud, arrived to oversee a website redesign and to expand and refine the e-journal in its current form.
In lieu of Claire Ruud's departure in 2010, Wendy Vogel, a long time contributor to ...might be good, assumed the position of the publication's editor. Currently, Eric Zimmerman, an artist and arts writer holds the editorship position after taking the helm in 2011.
