Hyperallergic? Antihistamines Not Required

Break out the champagne, not the Benadryl

My buddy Hrag Vartanian has introduced his new blogazine, Hyperallergic (tag line: Sensitive to Art and Its Discontents). Congratulations, Hrag!
.
What's a blogazine? Well, it's a blog, but it's conceived like a magazine. The first post appeared on October 7, and Hrag and his staff (friends, interns and a group known as "the editors") have been pumping out features every day. There are contributors, too, like Heart as Arena 's Brent Burket. While it's heavy on the street art, there are also art reviews and a news feature that pulls in clips and links from all over the art world.

My favorite post so far: The 20 Most Powerless People in the Art World. Too-too-che!

Where Vanity Fair, W, Art Forum and Forbes fear to tread
