New Editors-at-Large in Miami and New Orleans

By January 03, 2020

Burnaway is excited to begin the new year by announcing that two new editors-at-large have joined our masthead: Ade J. Omotosho in Miami and Kristina Kay Robinson in New Orleans. As editors-at-large, they will contribute to Burnaway regularly and ensure the magazine’s coverage of their respective cities is robust and locally grounded.

Ade J. Omotosho Editor-at-Large, Miami

Ade J. Omotosho is a writer living in Miami and the Miami editor-at-large for Burnaway. He has held curatorial positions at Pérez Art Museum Miami and the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston.

For Burnaway, he has written on subjects including the photographic history of the Black male nude and the work of emerging artists in Miami, and his review of Paulo Nazareth’s 2019 solo exhibition at ICA Miami was included in Stranger, Harder, Brighter: The 2019 Burnaway Reader.

Kristina Kay Robinson Editor-at-Large, New Orleans

Kristina Kay Robinson is a writer, curator, and artist born and raised in New Orleans, Louisiana. Her writing has appeared in publications including Guernica, The Baffler, The Nation, The Massachusetts Review, and Elle. She is a 2019 recipient of the Rabkin Prize for Visual Arts Journalism and leads Room 220, a division of Antenna Gallery that advocates for New Orleans’s literary culture. As a programming partner of Prospect.5, Robinson will produce a series of free literary events relating to history and voices of color throughout 2020.

She recently wrote about the “cinematic third space” developed by Ghanaian-American filmmaker Akosua Adoma Owusu for Burnaway.

Burnaway editor Logan Lockner says, “I’m thrilled to welcome Ade and Kristina to Burnaway’s editorial team. Each of them maintains an active presence in their local cultural community and possesses a finely tuned, urgently necessary critical perspective. I join Burnaway’s readers in looking forward to what Kristina and Ade bring to the magazine as editors-at-large.”
