Issue 01: Notions of Place

Spring 2018

It is with great joy that we share the inaugural print edition of Boston Art Review with you. Issue 01, “Notions of Place” seeks to explore what it means to create work, within the context of a place.

In these pages, you will find essays, reviews, interviews, profiles, and features written by a diverse cross section of scholars, curators, educators, artists, and community members who believe in the power of arts writing to connect individuals from throughout Boston and beyond through creative engagement in critical discourse.
