Art & Shadows was made possible by the support of a generous one-year Art Writers grant from the Andy Warhol Foundation, administered by Creative Capital. Writing the blog was a wonderfully generative period that seeded several projects now coming to fruition. First up is further work on the aesthetics of complexity, an essay titled “Vulnerability, Brutality, Hope: Complexism and the 56th Venice Biennale” in a double issue of the Technoetic Arts Journal on complexism, for April, 2016. Material originally written for Art & Shadows will also be appearing in print, in augmented form, as part of The Routledge Companion to Biology in Art & Architecture which I co-edited with Charissa Terranova. That volume is due in August, 2016 from (no surprise) Routledge. As other projects approach publication, they will be announced here. My gratitude to the Art Writers Grant program for supporting a period of concentrated creative work knows no bounds.
