A LETTER FROM THE EDITOR

0

By MATTHEW GAMBER


Who is behind the masthead of Big RED and Shiny?

Just who is the conduit of its content?

Have you ever wanted to know what our philosophy is?

Who are we, really, in the anonymity of the web?

Recently we realized that we didn't know much about each other either, except maybe what our iChat avatar represents. For this issue, we decided to ask one another questions to find out what makes the other person tick. We have a large article introducing the main staff at Big RED to you through interviews by one another. Yeah, we help make this thing happen, but what else do we do? If you are interested, click to the left just below Mr. Nash's article looking at the function of public art and why the Berwick Research Institute is a unique Boston how it facilitates work that might not be produced otherwise.

Four reviews from around the area including Portland Museum of Art, the Photographic Resource Center, Mills Gallery, and the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art. Expanding our coverage to other parts of the continent, we bring of from the NYC and a review from Montreal, Quebec. This issue is rounded off by a column from regular Charles Giuliano and some news from Mass MoCA, Artadia and Ravi Jain.

So, here you go. Come back for seconds - we don't want to have to put this in Tupperware later.
