Pantheon of the Anteater, Part II
In the second installment of a two-part article, the author continues his account of taking a free art criticism course in fall 2013 taught by David Salle at Bruce High Quality Foundation University in New York. The first installment appeared in A.i.A.'s September issue.
The Andy and Edie Show
The East Village veteran recalls performing irreverent impersonations of Andy Warhol and Edie Sedgwick with Joey Arias—sometimes in the presence of Warhol himself.
The People's Palace
The Chicago Cultural Center is a bastion of exhibition opportunities for area artists—and a potential model for institutions elsewhere.
David Haxton's minimalistic films of the mid-1970s both embraced and dissolved spatial illusionism, thereby questioning the very notion of visual truth.
Painting the Unseen
"Unlike the critics, none of the artists I know has ever accused me of being a painter. The question isn't whether painting is alive or dead, either—that's a completely demented debate. Like every medium in art, painting has a specific significance, that's all there is to it."

New York dealer and Electronic Arts Intermix founder Howard Wise presciently championed light art, video and new media in the 1960s.
In the Studio: Richard Tuttle
Richard Tuttle began showing his work in the mid-'60s, at the age of 24, and quickly became a significant contributor in an art scene that included artists as diverse as Robert Smithson and Agnes Martin. While some of Tuttle's early, spare work builds upon the precedent of Minimalism, his art for the last 50 years has maintained its own curious independence: defiant of trends in contemporary culture, poetic in times dominated by austere conceptual art.
People, Awards, Obituaries
These volumes of Art in America’s history have not yet been digitized.
Founded in 1913 by art critic, historian and collector Frederic Fairchild Sherman under founding editor Wilhelm R. Valentiner, A.i.A., in its early issues, focused on old masters in American collections. For much of the ‘20s, the magazine was named Art in America and Elsewhere, reflecting its increasing geographic reach.
Its editors have been Jean Lipman (1941-71), Brian O’Doherty (1971-74), Elizabeth C. Baker (1974-2008), Marcia E. Vetrocq (2008-2011), and Lindsay Pollock (2011-present). Among the noted artists and critics who have written for its pages are Bernard Berenson, Benjamin H.D. Buchloh, Hal Foster, Adolph Gottlieb, Rosalind Krauss, Donald Kuspit, Thomas McEvilley, Robert Morris, Barbara Rose, Irving Sandler, Leo Steinberg, Craig Owens and Robert Storr.
The magazine was purchased in 1984 by Peter M. Brant, who owns it today.
