60th Anniversary Issue
In a special issue marking six decades in publication, ArtReview looks back at the history of the magazine, from black-and-white tabloid newspaper to today’s glossy edition, focusing on key movements, artists and critics (among them Lawrence Alloway, Reyner Banham and Peter Fuller) from each decade and including reproductions of some of the best articles.
The first issues of ArtReview (or Art News and Review, as it was then titled) featured artists’ self-portraits on the cover. In tribute to this, the anniversary issue features a portfolio of self-portraits by artists, photographers and critics who have contributed to the magazine over the last four years.
We also focus on the evolving role of art magazines more generally, looking back at the past 60 years and speculating on the role art magazines may play in the coming decades.
