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.
