The ArtReview magazine has gone all interactive online with their new ArtReview.com beta. I haven’t joined their new online community or spent much time on it yet, but it seems to be a more serious attempt to embrace the Internet than any of the other websites owned by major art magazines.
Throwing up pdf files of the printed magazine and charging fees that come close to the cost of the magazine in the newsagency has been the norm for most art magazines around the world. So it’s refreshing to see something different.
ArtReview says the new site is a “unique blend of community and editorial content, combining expert artworld voices with the input of artists and enthusiasts from around the world.”
Here’s what the ArtReview marketing blurb says about the site..
> Find exciting new artists
> Post your artwork, blogs, videos and audio
> Follow headline contemporary art news via RSS feeds
> Daily dispatches from the artworld’s major centres
> Create your own discussion groups and forums
> Features, reviews and magazine archives
> Find the galleries that represent the artists with ArtFinder
