The Fall season is upon us. Foliage, and in some parts, already snow. ARTPIL is making its rounds, currently posted in Lille, France, once European Capital of Culture, home of the recently inaugurated Institut pour la Photographie, and where we exhibited 30 Under 30 Women Photographers with Maison Photo.
We just launched our supplement section, Announcements, featuring brief news entries of events, exhibitions, and general announcements in the art world.
