The Brooklyn Rail Interviews Daniel: January 2022


“Founded in October 2000 and currently published ten times annually, the Brooklyn Rail provides an independent forum for arts, culture, and politics throughout New York City and far beyond. The journal, in addition to featuring local reporting; criticism of music, dance, film, and theater; and original fiction and poetry, covers contemporary visual art in particular depth. In order to democratize their art coverage, the Critics Page functions with a rotating editorship.” The Company thanks writer Christopher Atamian.

A Balanced New Year!

Willow, pictured above, represents balance, solidity, strength, and aspiration. Firmly rooted and reaching skyward. Oppositional forces keeping us in equilibrium, balancing past and present, needs and wants, realities and dreams. As 2022 arrives, we wish you fortitude and balance to help live with joy through another brave new year!
