Since 2014, Momus has dedicated itself to the vital, uphill work of producing criticism in a mostly uncritical time. Now, this laureled and loved online publication is moving into print with a compendium of its best – and best-read – art writing to date. This first collection includes selections from Andrew Berardini, Aruna D’Souza, Saelan Twerdy, Tausif Noor, Sky Goodden, Mitch Speed, Casey Beal, Lauren Wetmore, Ulysses Castellanos, Rahel Aimia, Joseph Henry, Kaegan Sparks, Kimberlee Cordova, and Alison Hugill.
