Being Thirty

81 - Printemps / été 2014

Theme:
For this 30th anniversary issue, we have departed from our usual thematic section to give carte blanche to a number of authors to examine twenty-first-century works or practices that have particularly caught their eye. Rather than merely ranking the best works of the past decade, the essays reveal the plurality of voices and forms of writing on art today—just like the practices that they describe. This issue paints a diverse portrait of art and art criticism as practised in 2014—an adventure in images and words, a brief but exciting voyage into the world of a dozen curators.
