Founded in 1949, ArtReview is one of the world’s leading international contemporary art magazines, dedicated to expanding contemporary art’s audience and reach, and tracing the ways it interacts with culture in general. Aimed at both a specialist and a general audience, the magazine and its sibling publication, ArtReview Asia (launched in 2013), feature a mixture of criticism, reviews, commentary and analysis alongside commissioned artist projects, guides and special supplements.
ArtReview publishes nine issues a year, including two dedicated to particular areas of focus: the Power 100 in the December issue and Future Greats at the beginning of the year. It is distributed throughout Europe, the Americas and Asia-Pacific. ArtReview Asia publishes four issues a year and is distributed throughout the region and in selected outlets elsewhere.
ArtReview develops and hosts regular events, ranging from talks and screenings to launches and conferences, both in its bar in London and at venues around the globe. In addition ArtReview curates live events and programmes for nonprofit institutions, art fairs and major art festivals. It also offers high-quality content and creative solutions to select global brand partners, including bespoke events, contract publishing of books and supplements, high-spec video and podcast content, and much more.
In ArtReview’s October issue – out now – Chris Fite-Wassilak profiles Jeffrey Gibson, the artist whose works unpick and repattern mythologies around the depiction of native cultures: ‘Dolled up in intricate beadwork and bright kitsch plumes, Gibson’s flamboyant artefacts mock the anthropological impulse, while buzzingly suggesting new rituals’.
Renewal can be a fraught process, as ruangrupa found at this year’s documenta fifteen. ArtReview’s Mark Rappolt and J.J. Charlesworth spoke to the collective’s farid rakun and Ade Darmawan about their hopes for and the results of ruangrupa’s artistic direction of documenta fifteen – and what happens next. Their work confounded many assumptions about how this major survey exhibition should be organised – and who and what it should be for. One thing was certain: they “had to fight for every inch”.
It’s a story that has dominated recent cultural discourse – and is touched on by Noam Chomsky, interviewed by Nika Dubrovsky for ArtReview October. Chomsky, a keen admirer of David Graeber’s work, discusses with Dubrovsky the late anthropologist’s last project, neoliberalism and democracy, Western empiricism and imperialism, free speech, Roe v. Wade, and the war in Ukraine.
