Issue 06: Timestamp
We are pleased to present Boston Art Review's sixth issue, Timestamp. This issue features stories, artist projects, and reflections that are collaborative and that reckon with the most urgent issues of our present moment: the impact of the pandemic, the continued fight to upend violent, systemic racism, a new president, and so much more.
Nakia Hill generously joined as a guest editor and oversaw a section dedicated to reclaiming space and celebrating Black writers, artists, and creators based in Boston titled "Revel in Black Excellence." The section, which comprises nearly half the issue, is a space for joy, healing, journeys of self, remembrance, and visions of future through an African diasporic lens.
Issue 06 will be shipped in mid-January. Order by January 16 to ensure your copy is in the first batch of shipments.
In addition to trying to cover our printing costs, we are fundraising for several organizations offering programs and resources for empowering BIPOC members of our community. Editor Nakia Hill has selected a handful of wonderful organizations we are excited to support. We will be donating 15% of all Issue 06 sales to Mothers for Justice and Equality, Youth Guidance's Becoming A Man Boston Program, Build Boston, and Black Market.
