We were recently covered in Broadly. The feature by UK editor Zing Tsjeng touched on our origins, particularly in response to the hegemonic narrative that women and gender non-conforming artists do not sell as well, or make art worthy enough of being seen. She also noted our contribution to the #NOTSURPRISED open letter which called for a no tolerance policy in response to Knight Landesman’s sexual misconduct; Tsjeng honed in on how we are venturing to reclaim and redefine the rigid art historical canon to propel us forward into a more inclusive future.

 

Tsjeng writes: “Topical Cream is a ‘concerted effort to change the narrative,’ [Editor Whitney] Mallett explains, adding, “I hope it gives people a space—whether that’s a space to write, a space to perform, a space to be acknowledged, or a space to just read ideas.”

“It is true that reading Topical Cream is a soothing journey into a slice of the art world that does not, for example, routinely underpay and undervalue women and gender non-conforming people.” -Zing Tsjeng for Broadly
