Cream for the Holiday Season

Last week I received a delightful email update from cream, a group of writers and curators which focuses on 'art in networks' and publishes a web site. The email, entitled 'cream *14*: the Joy of Closure,' contained writings by French artist and writer Frederic Madre, New York-based writer Blackhawk, Dutch critic Josephine Bosma, and a mysterious 'Ms. O.' I especially liked Madre's headlining contribution, a description of ways in which the web seems closed, and Ms. O.'s cryptic autobiography. Two subjective reasons to check out cream; other perhaps more objective allures include the site's comprehensive archive and thorough updates on people and events. Do you know who Saul Albert is? Get creamed. -- Rachel Greene
