Magazines and website
Founded in 1949, ArtReview and ArtReview Asia are two of the world’s leading international contemporary art magazines, dedicated to expanding contemporary art’s audience and reach.
In June 2019, Modern Media Holdings Ltd, China’s leading high-end communications group, acquired a majority shareholding in ArtReview Ltd, the publisher of ArtReview, ArtReview Asia and artreview.com. The titles joined a multimedia publishing organisation that includes The Art Newspaper China, LEAP, Modern Weekly, Nowness and Numéro.
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 ArtReview and ArtReview Asia feature 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.
The ArtReview website features a mix of art news, articles from recent and current issues of ArtReview and ArtReview Asia magazines, exclusive web-only content, artist projects, highlights from 70 years of issues from the ArtReview archive, and multimedia content from around the web. The website also contains the latest Power 100 microsite, charting ArtReview's annual ranked list of the contemporary artworld's most powerful players, from its initiation in 2002, to the current year.
ArtReview is published nine times a year, including two annual focuses: The Power 100 and FutureGreats. ArtReview Asia is published four times a year. Additionally we publish artist books and special 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. Advised by an anonymous panel of international artworld figures, artists, collectors, gallerists, critics and curators are ranked in order of influence, in the world's definitive guide to the often invisible structures of the current artworld.
At the beginning of the year ArtReview publishes its annual guide to the artists who are setting new agendas in relation to the role and social relevance of art. 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 and supplements
ArtReview publishes specially created artist books and special supplements, 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 and special supplements that include a publication to mark the opening of the new Tate Modern in 2016.
