Big Red & Shiny is a Boston based online journal and blog that examines contemporary art. First published in 2004, it has returned in 2012 after a two year absence with a deeper roster of writers, editors, and advisers.

Collecting writers from around the globe, the journal for Big Red & Shiny is a source for texts on theory, history, and the reception of art, having earned grants from the LEF Foundation in 2005 and 2007. As focused observer for art in the Boston area, the blog for Big Red & Shiny covers exhibitions in New England and the artists who live there.
