Arts Illustrated - December 2017-January 2018

Art, Photography
Arts Illustrated is an Indian based arts and design magazine dedicated to understanding the contemporary arts landscape and creating a more inclusive ecosystem for the arts in the country. It delves deeply into the visual arts and design narrative, offering a global and contemporary perspective to subjects, information and ideas that we believe, need to be heard by a larger audience. Our endeavour is to create an exciting read that reflects our ethos to inspire, evoke and enrich our readers. Our visually laid out chronicle of the creative landscape is published bi-monthly (once in two months) and is available across 12 key cities in India.

This issue of Arts Illustrated is dedicated to what we call ‘Tactile Art’, to the materiality of art that works with old, new, found, discarded, recreated, recycled ‘senses’ to bring fresh, immersive narratives. We look at art that necessarily goes beyond the four walls of a canvas engaging all five (or some) of our senses in ways that are surprising and unexpected, but essentially tangible while letting go of traditional constructs of form and structure, narrative and meaning, seeing and the ways of seeing, and how individual patterns become part of our collective journeys.
