Today we announce the launch of “The Writers’ Auction,” our fall benefit auction running on Paddle8 through October 23, 2014.

This means more resources to edit artist essays, in-depth interviews and reviews, and daily news coverage.

We’re going to dole out this week’s blogger prize for Most Offensive Post one day early, because we’re pretty sure no one’s going to top GalleristNY. Yesterday, the blog celebrated Jayson Musson’s first show at Salon 94 with a two-page profile on the artist full of racist undertones. That’s an awfully strong word, and because we don’t use it lightly, we’re going to highlight exactly what we don’t like and why.
