Four on the Floor is my newsletter about art in New York City. Once a month I pick four artworks on display and then write some brief notes about each one. They're not exactly reviews--more like meditations--but I do aim to share the best work I can find. Each issue includes bonus material about art-world developments, and news about recent work by myself and others.
