EDI­TOR’S NOTE

Red Magazine - - Contents - @ri­arec­om­mends

Truth is, we were sup­posed to shoot a cover, but we were given the run-around and I was just not up for it any­more. So when peo­ple say, “All things hap­pen for a rea­son,” it holds true for this is­sue, be­cause now, we got to put Venice Bi­en­nale on the cover—some­thing I had wanted to do for years.

I used to at­tend as many gallery open­ings as I could be­cause I en­joyed the ex­pe­ri­ence of view­ing art in an ex­hi­bi­tion set­ting, but I stopped be­cause I felt the scene started to be­come too cliqueish. Now, slowly but surely, I am find­ing my­self en­ter­ing gal­leries once more (hardly dur­ing show open­ings, how­ever) en­joy­ing works of both old and new artists I ad­mire. I guess it’s just re­ally about that: Find­ing the happy medium that works for me. That’s what I am slowly try­ing to learn, not just in art but in a lot of as­pects in life. I hope this is­sue brings you as much joy as it did to us as we were work­ing on it. The cover ex­cited the

RED team; it’s some­thing new to the mag­a­zine. And yes, in pro­duc­ing this is­sue, we also learned how to find a hap­pier (if not bet­ter) way of deal­ing with sur­prises.
