Sometimes my freelance arts criticism slips through the cracks once it’s published. Here’s a profile/interview I did on Kerry James Marshall for the Economist in 2016 upon his retrospective show at the MCA in Chicago. Wonderful interview with a great and down-to-earth artist and the show was just as good as expected.
