BOOKMARKS: Nikita Gale's Top Five February Reads

Sorry, looks like no contributors are set

Today we introduce BOOKMARKS—short reading lists recommended by artists and arts professionals in and around Atlanta. It is our hopes that these links to further readings will help support an outward focus, fostering broader conversations around visual culture in today’s society.

This month we spoke with Atlanta artist Nikita Gale:

“I’m sure a lot of people know about This Recording, but it’s one of my favorite websites to go to for contemporary millenial essays on pop culture and art. These aren’t all recent, but they’ve been on my reading list recently and have been informing some of the newer work I’ve been making.”

 1. Relics by KARA VANDERBIJL for This Recording
