Hyperallergic is a forum for playful, serious, and radical perspectives on art and culture in the world today.
Our incisive coverage of art and its discontents has been cited in outlets ranging from The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Guardian, and The Atlantic to The New Yorker, The Nation, WNYC, Gawker, Kottke, Andrew Sullivan, and Felix Salmon, among countless others.
In early 2013 we partnered with Tumblr to co-produce the first-ever Tumblr Art Symposium, and our curatorial efforts with Tumblr and elsewhere have been praised by Wired, Paper Magazine, BULLETT, The Content Strategist, and leading Swedish newspaper Sydsvenskan.
The Hyperallergic Newsletter is sent out daily to a subscriber base of 48,000, and every Tuesday it includes a letter from the editor with a recap of the most popular and important stories from the week. Subscribers also get first dibs on Hyperallergic events, which include discussions, parties, screenings, and performances.
Hyperallergic also publishes a Weekend edition edited by a collective of leading writers and journalists, including John Yau, Thomas Micchelli, and Albert Mobilio.

“Hyperallergic [is a] witty, provocative, artblog-meets-magazine that is at once playful and serious and impossible to stop reading.” (Artsy)
“Hyperallergic, by the way, is that rare thing, deeply informed, up-to-the-minut
“Brooklyn’s foremost venue for art news and criticism” (Ben Sutton, The L Magazine)
“For a sense of the problem and a seasonal feast of pity and fear, see my favorite list, “The 20 Most Powerless People in the Art World,” at the infectiously ill-tempered blog Hyperallergic.” (Peter Schjeldahl, art critic, The New Yorker)
