About Us


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. We believe that art plays a vital role in inspiring a richer, more profound understanding of human experience, culture and society today. Aimed at both a specialist and a general audience, the magazine features a mixture of criticism, reviews, reportage and specially commissioned artworks, and offers the most established, in-depth and intimate portrait of international contemporary art in all its shapes and forms.

ArtReview publishes nine issues a year, including two special focuses: The Power 100 and Future Greats. Additionally we publish a series of artist books, regional art guides and supplements.

The Power 100

Established in 2002, ArtReview's annual Power 100 issue, published in November, is the longest-running and most authoritative guide to the forces that are driving the international contemporary art scene. Artists, collectors, gallerists, critics and curators are ranked in order of influence in the world's definitative guide to the often invisible structure of the artworld today.

Future Greats

Every March ArtReview publishes a guide to artists to watch out for over the coming year. Selected by an expert international panel of artists, critics and curators, Future Greats offers a unique glimpse today of the artists who will be setting the agenda tomorrow.

Artist Books

ArtReview publishes a series of specially created artist books, available exclusively to readers of the magazine and privileging direct, unmediated and uncensored communication between the artists and their audience. Publications include projects by Thomas Hirschhorn, Elmgreen & Dragset, Paul McCarthy and Juergen Teller.

Regional Art Guides

As part of a growing series of country guides, ArtReview curently publishes annual focuses on Brazil, Hong Kong and South Africa. At Once overviews of the local or regional art scenes and detailed investigations of the issues and concerns directing art production in those territories, these focuses offer a complete guide to local galleries and institutions, profiles of artists to watch and an insight in the latest developments in some of the most dynamic yet overlooked centres of art production around the world.


ArtReview publishes annual guides to the worlds of design (April) and multiples (October). These supplements function as in-depth guides to disciplines and activities that are related to or are part of the mainstream artworld, but rarely feature in its discourses.
