I was guest editor of ART21 Magazine for their Renewal-themed issue, published in Spring, 2016.

ART21 Magazine provides a space for insightful writing on contemporary art and artists, and includes regular columns, original editorial features, exclusive videos and interviews, and content from ART21’s rich archive. Published six times per year, each issue of the magazine is devoted to a single theme.

As guest editor, I commissioned articles from writers, shaped and edited written contributions to the issue, curated an online call for entries alongside the multimedia publishing platform NewHive, and wrote several pieces myself.
