Holding a Mirror to the Art World - The Power of Artforum

14 August | New York

Since 1962, Artforum has delivered groundbreaking criticism on the latest developments in contemporary art – exploring trends, making discoveries and writing the history of the art of our times. This summer, Sotheby’s presents Covering the Art World: Six Decades of Art Forum, a special exhibition in partnership with Artforum that showcases six decades of the leading art world publication’s covers. In this video, join long-time publisher Tony Korners, editor-in-chief David Velasco, and Sotheby’s Chairman Amy Cappellazzo as they discuss the enduring power of Artforum. Never before displayed together, these covers are a stunning, often provocative, view of the evolution of contemporary art. The exhibition is open to the public through 23 August.
