It’s the end of the year and Arterritory.com has published its first magazine in printed form – “Arterritory Conversations”, which is a collection of the most vivid and exclusive interviews from our vault.
Over the course of this year journalists have met and conversed with a wide range of artists, curators, critics and art industry professionals, whose names are significant not only in the Baltic, Scandinavian and Russian territories, but also within the global art and culture scene.
Amongst them are such colourful contemporaries as British artist Mike Nelson, the young Icelandic star Ragnar Kjartansson, much talked about Danish fashion designer Henrik Vibskov, gallerist Marat Guelman from Moscow, world-renowned Russian curator Victor Misiano, the representative of the famous Bonnier dynasty and the driving force behind Bonnier Konsthall Jeanette Bonnier, the Director of the prestigious Whitechapel Gallery Iwona Blazwick and Martin Creed, the laureate of Turner Prize, the most significant prize for visual arts in Britain.
These conversations are bright witnesses of our time, which not only unfold the current view of the 21-century, but, in many cases, also mark the perspectives of the future. In our opinion, this magazine would be an exciting read for just about everyone, who is interested in contemporary culture. And it should be a “compulsory reading” for every student interested in the humanitarian field.
“Arterritory Conversations” is produced as three separate publications in Latvian, English and Russian languages and in the future it will continue its life as an annual magazine.
The publication’s visual identity was fashioned by “Tundra” and artist Kirils Kirasirovs, one of the most outstanding graphic designers in Latvia.
The concept of “Arterritory Conversations” was created by Una Meistere, the Director of Arterritory.com, and Daiga Rudzāte, the Creative Director, but the magazine’s content was formed by the portal’s creative team.
