I was also invited to submit a remembrance of my aunt Zabel Hamalian for BBC World Service [“Remembering those lost to COVID-19,” BBC OS (September 11, 2020)], which gave me a space to mourn my beloved Zabel tantig during a time when communal gatherings and travel was restricted.

Hyperallergic Special Issues

I launched the new Sunday Edition at Hyperallergic in April 2020. It was an odd time during the pandemic but it was planned for months and felt like it gave me a sense of normalcy amidst the chaos all around.

I kicked it off with Viral: From Pandemics to Popularity  (April 19, 2020), which established my desire to made these editions connected to the moment. I was very happy with the launch and reception and it encouraged me and managing editor Seph Rodney to keep building the section.

Viral was followed by Minimalisms: From Daitokuji to Normie Modernism (May), Juneteenth: From Images of Liberation to Remembrances (June), Mistakes: From Oversights to Missteps (August), and the final edition was connected to the US Presidential election through the theme of Propaganda: From Screed to Screen (October)

This year I got to travel to Egypt to create a podcast about the Egyptian Surrealism (January 5) exhibition, which was a special treat as few outlets covered the show.  I also had the good fortune to score an extensive interview with Ford Foundation President Darren Walker (November 9) and he opened up about art, equity, and some of the revitalization projects the foundation is supporting in Detroit.
