Phillip Barcio

I write regularly for IdeelArt, New Art Examiner, Hyperallergic, and the Art Media Agency. My work has also been included in La Gazette Drouot, on the blog pages of Barneby's and MasterArt, and is included in the Smithsonian Archives of American Art. I formerly covered contemporary art for Tikkun Magazine in Berkeley. I have had the pleasure of writing catalogue essays for several dynamic contemporary artists, including Young-Il Ahn, Gerald Williams, Glenn Kaino, Nick Cave, Firelei Báez, and Jeffly Gabriela Molina. I strive to write about art in a way that is insightful, accessible, timely, clear, and not annoying. When not covering art, I write short, speculative fiction stories, usually involving something magical. I am a two-time Glimmer Train Stories contest finalist, and my stories have recently found homes on and in the Swamp Ape Review. If you're a fan, friend, or you want to work with me, please get in touch!
