The end of the year has arrived. It is a time for looking back, and for catching up on the books, movies, stories, and albums one missed over the past 12 months. Below are a few suggestions for articles to consider reading during this quiet time—the 20 most popular stories of the year, ranging from David Salle’s review of the Musuem of Modern Art’s “Forever Now” show to selections included in our special Women in Art World issue. Thank you for reading. We will see you next year. —The Editors
