Student News: Andrianna Campbell Co-launches apricota, a New Journal of Modern and Contemporary Art History and Criticism

Edited by Graduate Center doctoral candidate Andrianna Campbell and Reed College visiting assistant professor Joanna Fiduccia, apricota is conceived as as an “antidote to the cool remove of many forums for art historical scholarship.”  Issue 1 is dedicated to the theme of fights, “from the verbal spat to the gloves-off brawl.”

According to the editors, apricota “infuses its seriousness with a lively affection for the decorative, for kitsch, queerness, eccentricity, and otherness, and it seeks, like the color it names, to stand for identities and positions which are no less specific for being intermediary.”
