Dear Indy Reader,

 

One whole year has passed since the Georgetown campus closed for the pandemic—and here we still are, writing away about culture and hoping for better to come soon. This March issue is heavy with this sort of optimism. 

 

Like the spring flowers as they bloom into a new temperature, a number of new contributors make their début this March. Cat Haseman delivers a strong review of the series Chilling Adventures of Sabrina as it comes to an abrupt close, celebrating its aesthetic and its symbolic quality whilst recognizing its character development flaws. Audrey Ledford pens a succinct, tight Suggests piece of DailyArt, an innovative art app that brings the elusive museum experience right to your mobile device. Margaret Rand profiles contemporary artist Jameson Green in a riveting Spotlight. All three are must-reads.

 

Indy veterans pull through with solid hitters, too: Anthony Bonavita gives us a look into Fran Leibovitz and Martin Scorsese’s relationship in his review of Pretend It’s A City, Jackson Foran serves privilege on a plate in his monthly Sass piece, and resident movie buff Connor Rush recommends the Danish film Another Round. Gene Kim spotlights Georgetown student and social media influencer Linh Truong as she carves out a positive space on a negative Internet, and Brendan Hegarty reviews Spanish rapper C. Tangana’s newest project. Fittingly, Max Zhang presents a poem about the pandemic’s smallest comforts, stretching from sun to somatic.

 

As we are so often made aware, the world is a violent place. Let this issue be a reminder that art can be a small salve in light of it all.

 

Care for yourself this week. x

 

Our best,

 

Max & Gene
