Posting will be very light on the blog for the next week or so while we all enjoy the holiday break away with our families. However, we will be posting a new Off-Topic essay tomorrow, so look out for that! And don’t forget to listen to this week’s podcast, an interview with Monica Bonvicini about her current exhibition Light Me Black at The Art Institute of Chicago, conducted by Richard and Duncan. Happy holidays everyone!
