A new year — and hopefully, some new positive energy — is finally in sight. To round out this (actual) hell of a year, we offer a steady stream of reviews, year-end reflections, and of course, our annual “powerless list,” which highlights issues of inequality and injustice in the art community.
Looking to close out the year in front of the tube (‘cause where else)? Check out our streaming list for auld lang syne.
As you make your final year-end donations, why not consider adding a Hyperallergic membership to your list? It comes with great perks like a free tote, store discounts, and special offers from our partners, plus you’ll help make our 2020 just a little brighter.
Happy New Year ✨

Recently, Grand Central commuters were gifted a sight for sore, hurried eyes. A new permanent installation by artist Jim Hodges now greets passersby of the connection between Grand Central Terminal and the Grand Central-42 St subway station. The site-specific mirrored glass installation is titled I dreamed a world and called it Love.
In other news, Cora Fisher, László Jakab Orsós, and Laura Raicovich share word of the new Art & Society Census, a partnership between the Brooklyn Public Library and Hyperallergic, which wants to hear from you about recent shifts in art and culture.
