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.
ArtReview Asia’s Winter issue features cover artist Citra Sasmita, whose largescale installations and paintings on fabric scrolls picture the violence of Indonesia’s colonial history; Shuang Li’s exploration of the theme of fandom via videos, performance and sculpture; Soumya Sankar Bose’s photography which upends the documentary method by blending fact with fiction in wide-ranging series that offer a deeply humanising connection to social injustices; Nawapol Thamrongrattanarit, an indie filmmaker whose coming-of-age productions filled with mildly troubled adolescents and listless young adults broadly appeal to a younger generation of Thai twenty-somethings; and photographer Hiroshi Sugimoto talks about architecture, Japanese tradition, Shintoism and the spirit of natural materials. Plus an artist project by Himali Singh Soin and David Soin Tappeser.
