Travis Jeppesen on Joe Bradley
"No one does shit like Bradley. Probably no one else is brave enough."
William Cordova on Juana Valdes in “Relational Undercurrents” at MOLAA
"Valdes's installation makes us inspect mass-produced objects as part of the neocolonial narrative."
Stephanie Smith on Mark Dion
"We need Mark's artful mix of science, nerdiness, creative obsession, wonder, and humor right now."
Antonia Carver on Hassan Sharif
"Attention from the market and institutions has created a somewhat mythic persona that appears contradictory for a practitioner who was resolutely collaborative, down-to-earth."
Yuko Hasegawa on Taus Makhacheva
"Taus Makhacheva has a very sophisticated, subtle way of opening up the history of everyday life."
Jay Sanders on Allen Ruppersberg
"He explores how you can use popular forms but have a set of avant-garde concerns operating in the work."
Nancy Princenthal on David Wojnarowicz
"Wojnarowicz was so savagely honest about where he came from and making it part of his work, which is full of passion and rage but still has this amazingly lyrical touch."
The Guide is a comprehensive alphabetical listing, arranged by state and city, of US galleries, private dealers, print dealers, corporate consultants, museums, nonprofit, spaces and university galleries.

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.
