Our Winter 2018 columnists in residence are artist, writer, and editor Bean Gilsdorf; writer and teacher Sesshu Foster; and editor and writer Jessica Lynne. Over the next four months, they will publish on a rotating basis; what they choose to address, and how, is up to them. And once their official tenure is over, they will retain lifelong publishing rights, joining an ever-growing cohort of alumni columnists. So far as we know, this is a unique experiment among major art institutions. We’re very proud of this program, which was envisioned and built by our singular founding editor, Suzanne Stein, and we look forward to seeing where Bean, Sesshu, and Jessica will take us.
