We're putting together a list of resources for self-education, mutual aid, and ongoing action in the struggle for racial justice.

Reframing the Death of Art:
CHRIS CAMPANIONI with Giancarlo Lombardi

Campanioni re-evaluates intimacy and narcissism in 2016—not just its mode and function, but how we think about and value each—and he does so in unexpected and unusual ways.
