INREVIEW is a free, printed quarterly publication dedicated to presenting critical responses and engaging extended conversations about art in the Twin Cities. This publication sparked from the realization that there is a need within the art community for further dialogue surrounding visual arts and exhibitions throughout Minneapolis and St. Paul.

INREVIEW includes contributions from a broad range of writers who are artists, curators, educators, students and critics. Each are critical, curious and invested in the arts community.

INREVIEW is published by Chris Larson and funded by the University of Minnesota Imagine Fund Grant.
