In early 2013 we partnered with Tumblr to co-produce the first-ever Tumblr Art Symposium, and our curatorial efforts with Tumblr and elsewhere have been praised byWiredPaper MagazineBULLETT,  The Content Strategist, and leading Swedish newspaper Sydsvenskan.

The Hyperallergic Newsletter is sent out weekly to a subscriber base of twenty thousand, and includes a letter from the editor with a recap of the most popular and important stories from the week. Subscribers also get first dibs on Hyperallergic events, which include discussions, parties, screenings, and performances.

Hyperallergic [is a] witty, provocative, artblog-meets-magazine that is at once playful and serious and impossible to stop reading.”  (

Hyperallergic, by the way, is that rare thing, deeply informed, up-to-the-minute and often an irresistible read. I look at it most days.” (Mary Louise Schumacher, art critic at the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel)
