You can now read Aesthetica Magazine wherever you are with our new digital subscriptions accessible via iPad, iPhone and Android devices. A bi-monthly publication, Aesthetica brings you the latest news in contemporary art and culture. It is the ultimate destination for discovering industry developments, ground-breaking exhibitions and world-class artists.
Aesthetica opens up discussion around the parameters of art forms and presents the work of artists who are pushing the boundaries of their medium. The review of light installation artist James Turrell’s three-part retrospective that traversed states, headlining at The Guggenheim in New York, The Museum of Fine Arts in Houston and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, explored the artist’s approach to transforming spatial divisions. The hallucinatory, epiphanic and sublime installations were captured in stunning full-page image features, documenting and enlivening this seminal show.
An essential guide to current events, Aesthetica also charts the history, works and life of artists and designers to provide an extensive account of developments in the art world. Through dynamic content and critical debate, Aesthetica explored the rise of Paul Smith from a single, tiny shop in Nottingham to a designer of global domination; it reviewed Hello, my name is Paul Smith at the Design Museum, London, as a celebration of Paul Smith as a company and a creative mastermind.
In each issue there is a unique opportunity to appreciate the international breadth and experience the range and quality of artwork that is being produced today. In photography, Aesthetica reports on global leaders, such as Henri Cartier-Bresson. His work is defined by the ethos of “the decisive moment” – a frozen second in time – which has inspired generations of photographers to follow in his footsteps and seize a moment through the eye of the camera. Aesthetica introduces the work of exceptional new photographers, providing a means of discovering the best in emerging talent.
With an Aesthetica subscription, you also have the opportunity to hear from artists themselves as we interview them directly, giving unparalleled access to the creative practices of the biggest personalities in the contemporary art scene. In conversation with British sculptor and installation artist Cornelia Parker, Aesthetica unearthed details about her interest in the potential of materials and the challenges of working with certain spaces and audiences.
