10"x8" ($24) | 14"x11" ($60) | 20"x16" ($240) | 30"x24" ($1200)

Thrilled, delighted, honored, excited, over-the-moon, proud… all of these are words I’ve used in preface to debuting new artists and editions on the site, and I’ve always used them most sincerely. Sharing new work with our collectors is one of my greatest joys in life, and that our artists have entrusted us to present their passions and ideas is a true privilege. Today, I’m all of the above and more, as our newest edition—Resist., by artist and designer Edel Rodriguez—is an urgent exhortation to stand up for our joys and freedoms.

We Can Do Better. February 23 2017


Signs in the windows of a Marcus Garvey club in the Harlem area by Gordon Parks
We’ve never shied away from voicing our progressive political opinions around here; these opinions are often expressed in the art itself and/or in the essays that accompany them. We’re proud of the values that drive these choices, but we’ve fallen short in expressing those values in one crucial way: namely via the diversity of our artist roster. People of color are really underrepresented, and we’re especially lacking when it comes to Black contemporary artists.

That underrepresentation is something we’re actively working to address. We’re taking a fresh approach as we search for new artists to collaborate with, and you can expect to see a broader range of artists represented going forward. We’re super grateful to have an amazing array of resources to guide us, and wanted to share some of them with you.

Image as Activism: Gordon Parks’ Focus on the Finer Points February 18 2017


Signs in the windows of a Marcus Garvey club in the Harlem area by Gordon Parks
It could be said that Gordon Parks' specialty was telling unexpected visual stories with exceptional eloquence. A pioneering film director, composer and writer, Parks was a bonafide polymath but is best remembered for his work in the field of documentary photojournalism. One of his most iconic images—Washington, D.C. Government charwoman—was created during his tenure with the photography program of the Farm Security Administration, along with numerous other stunning if less widely known images. Today's release is one of those lesser-known gems.
