To put ideas discussed at the Superscript arts journalism and criticism conference into practice, Hyperallergic is partnering with the Walker Art Center to announce the Superscript Blog Mentorship.
After last year’s knockout Knockdown Lost adventure with Amanda Lepore, Blood Orange, Choire Sicha, and many others, we’re taking another bold step into the hidden core of New York City and are excited to bring you The Lost Lectures NY – Number Two.
There’s never a shortage of art books, but it is often hard to find the best in a field flooded with vanity projects, sales tools, and books that promise so much more than they deliver.
Preparing a list of the best art exhibitions in the world is a lofty endeavor, but we’re not going to pretend we’ve seen every single show on the globe, only many of them. Consider this a subjective but informed list of our global favorites that we want you to know about.
This list gives you a sense of some of the best this year across the United States.
Let’s face it: there’s Brooklyn, and then there’s the rest of New York City. (Sorry, rest of New York City!)
Between the proliferation of galleries in Bushwick and, to a lesser extent, Greenpoint, the small cadre of Dumbo galleries sticking it out, longtime heavyweights including the Brooklyn Museum and BRIC mounting ambitious shows, and Creative Time parachuting Kara Walker’s sugar sphinx into the Domino Sugar Factory, it’s been an exceptionally strong year for art in Brooklyn.

With the mercury dropping in the art world power centers of old, it’s time for the annual migration to Miami for Art Basel Miami Beach, its ever-expanding roster of satellite fairs and pop-up exhibitions, and the impossible schedule of parties and performances all week long (December 1–7, 2014).
Starting today, Hyperallergic will be publishing an online catalogue for Hypersalon, a weeklong series of salon-style exhibitions, artist talks, and conversations on the conditions of networked culture in contemporary art.
Thanks to James Kerr for conjuring up the spirit of Thanksgiving for us.
You can watch tonight’s panel live here.
