IZO Shuts Down

One of the best blogs on Russian culture has shut down indefinitely. It was the pet project of gallery owner, collector, art historian and author Matthew Bown whose work we posted on a few months ago. This farewell message appeared on June 9th:

“Dear readers, I’m afraid this will be the last edition of IZO for the foreseeable future. I have not the time to devote to the blog since reaching an agreement with Yale University Press to write a book on the relationship between ancient relics and contemporary art. The book will require all my spare computer time. I want to thank all IZO’s readers, regular and irregular, for dropping by, and especially of course the contributors, among whom the outstanding figure has been MK from DC (here and here). Thanks so much, MK. The IZO blog will remain open for the time being as a reference source. Matthew.”

The site is definitely still worth checking out.  The categories on the right are probably the best way to dig through it now that nothing is exactly current news. Link
