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.

Latest Issue:

ArtReview’s April features cover artist Julien Creuzet, who, in challenging Venice Biennale’s defining principles, launched his project for the French Pavilion in Martinique. The issue also explores the work of Swiss artist and provocateur Christoph Büchel (in 2015, he turned a tenth-century abbey in Venice into a mosque, which was subsequently shuttered by the city’s authorities) and Koo Jeong A, who is representing South Korea at the Venice Biennale and is known for their site-specific architectural spaces that centre the ephemeral, including elements like smell and sound. On the occasion of the Venice Biennale’s 60th anniversary, ArtReview looks back on its historical coverage of event; meanwhile, J.J. Charlesworth questions what’s next for the contemporary art biennial, now that the era of neoliberal globalisation that shaped it starts to unravel.

Also in this issue: an interview with philosopher Paul B. Preciado, about the making of his new feature film Orlando, based on Virginia Woolf’s novel of the same title; art-historian and curator Manuel Borja-Villel asks whether it’s possible to decolonise a biennial; Deepa Bhasthi looks at how, in India, true-crime documentaries are deployed to reinforce patriarchal fantasies; Cassie Packard considers art’s role in creating and recycling e-waste; and Adam Thirlwell asks what aesthetic strategies can make sense of an unstable present. Plus, exhibition and book reviews from around the world.
