Arthopper.org announces a new editor, Indra Lacis, joining the team. With this new direction Arthopper seeks new art writers and cultural producers. (See Below)
Indra graduated with her MA in art history from Case Western Reserve University in 2007 and completed her PhD at Case in 2014. Her research and writing focuses on the development and current state of performance art, the impact of celebrity culture on art and its market, and the relationship between artists and audiences from the mid 20th century until the present day. She has curated collection-based, solo, group and participatory exhibitions at the Museum of Contemporary Art Cleveland, Zygote Press, the Cleveland Foundation and SPACES. Indra presents at art history conferences annually, teaches at the Cleveland Institute of Art and is particularly invested in understanding what an art world actually “is”—where its boundaries begin and end and how art functions within contemporary culture at large.

Arthopper.org invites writers, artists and cultural producers to submit proposals for articles that stimulate critical dialogue about art in the greater Lake Erie region.
We seek thought provoking, point-of-view essays that spark conversation about the role and value of art making and its display in your community. More than a platform for content-based exhibition reviews, Arthopper.org provides a forum for accessible and critical perspectives about the state of art in your city. We are especially interested in your accounts of studio visits with emerging and established or visiting artists; interviews with collectors, curators, art workers and museum / gallery / alternative space directors; down-to-earth, informative scholarly essays; and irreverent, anecdotal opinion pieces on art, social practice, craft, design and architecture.
Arthopper.org roots its critical discourse in insightful, weighty, well-researched and original narratives. This September we are specifically looking for pithy shorts + picks alerting readers about notable exhibitions, panels, conferences, art and pop-up events in and beyond the greater Lake Erie region. Please see our submission guidelines here and email editor [a-t] arthopper -dot- org with fall article proposals and suggestions for September shorts.
