ArtReview is one of the world’s leading international contemporary art magazines. Founded in 1949, it is dedicated to expanding contemporary art’s audience and reach. Published nine times a year, the magazine features a mixture of criticism, reviews, previews, opinion, reportage and specially commissioned artworks, and offers one of the most established, in-depth and intimate portraits of international contemporary art in all its shapes and forms. In 2013 ArtReview was joined by its sister magazine ArtReview Asia, now published four times a year, which brings a fresh and exciting new voice to the dynamic and fast-changing art scenes of the Asia region, as well as covering Asian art presented outside of the region.
The ArtReview archive consists of all issues going back to 2006, when the title was relaunched in its present form, as well as all issues of ArtReview Asia from its first issue in 2013. Together, the two titles provide an invaluable resource for those interested in the current era of contemporary art; the ArtReview archive is an indispensable reference for all art students, art historians and other humanities researchers, as well as offering an independent and first-hand research tool for professionals working in galleries, museums and institutions.
In the months that have passed since the previous issue of ArtReview Asia was published, people around the world have been asked by governments around the world to contemplate a ‘new normal’. The Summer issue of ArtReview Asia navigates this, and the art being made and shown, to discover that the virus, though everywhere apparent, is not the only story in town.
