Up to this point of the Infinite Art Tournament, there haven't been many interruptions to the orderly alphabetical entrance of First Round contestants. That will change from here on out, however, as resolution of First-Round Ties and the gradual entrance of artists from the great Play-In Tournament will be occupying the first of most of the remaining bracket quartets. Awesome voters, please welcome Remedios Varo to the canon of Tournament-grade artists, and welcome back André Beauneveu after two years of anxious pacing in the tied artists' holding pen!!

As the internet's preeminent site for interactive, democratic art appreciation, Infinite Art Tournament frees great art from the straitjackets of chronology and categorical conventions in order to put it in a new straitjacket of its own devising. The IAT further seeks to delight its community of creative, bracingly intelligent, and drop-dead sexy readers with glib but cheerful dispatches from the worlds of literature, film, the visual arts, music, chemistry, Shakespeare, postal ephemera, vexillology, and hagiography. College football rarely comes up.
