Starting this week, Hyperallergic has forged an expanded editorial team that will ensure more engaging, fun, quality and thoughtful posts.
The announcement comes at the beginning of the fall arts season as we prepare to launch our full assault on the art world.
Here is the newly expanded and evolved line up:
Hrag Vartanian, Editor-in-Chief (formerly Editor)
Jillian Steinhauer, Senior Editor (formerly Assistant Editor)
Kyle Chayka, Senior Editor (previously Associate Editor at ArtInfo)
Janelle Grace , Talk Back Tuesday LABS Editor
Chayka’s byline should be familiar to longtime readers of the site as he was a previous staff writer for Hyperallergic, and we are excited to welcome him back in an expanded role as Senior Editor.
To mark the occasion we wanted to invite our friends and readers to a small “Meet the Editors” Happy Hour next Tuesday Sept 11, 2012 at The Bedford near our office in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
Please join us for a drink to celebrate our new editorial team. (We’ve also arranged for some drink specials including $1 off drafts and $6 Kicking Mules, which are a dangerous/delicious mix of vodka, fresh ginger juice, lime and ginger beer.)
