Big Red & Shiny

Big Red & Shiny is a non-profit arts organization and online art journal. Based in Boston, we commission and publish articles, essays and reviews that explore the theory, history and reception of art in its current conditions, by experienced writers here and around the globe. Additionally, we use the web-platform to showcase original multimedia content in the form of short documentaries and time-based artworks. By contrast, our Daily Red blogazine is an informal venue for a dynamic and direct conversation about art and artists.
