First, congratulations on your 100th. might be good... has become an important, unique and potent voice concerning the arts in Texas and beyond. Thanks to all of you for continuing to make waves.
I was particularly engrossed by your 100th issue. It presented five distinct and provocative perspectives on art and art criticism: Shiff, Meyer, Hickey, Judd, and Fletcher. I was impressed by this gathering of divergent and formidable voices, yet took note that this powerful and interesting quintuplet was composed entirely of white men. It reminded me how difficult it is to constantly maintain diversity on all fronts and prompted me to once again consider the elusive and troubling question of identity and the challenges of figuring it into our selection of artists, writers, voices, etc.
