Let’s celebrate CURA. 25 summer issue with a special edition dedicated to 25 (plus one) outstanding protagonists of the contemporary art scene, selected among the most interesting female artists of the new generation.

Women are the protagonists of this iconic issue, thanks to a series of multi-faced portraits and to the contribution of an international board of critics and curators. Far from the more radical expressions of feminism, the new generation of women artists defines a refreshed attitude toward hot themes connected with intimacy, sexuality, the body, daily life, public and private space, race, gender, family, roles, tradition, social and political engagement. The artists’ selection proudly introduces: Meriem Bennani (by Martha Kirszenbaum); Hannah Black (by manuel arturo abreu); Amy Brener (by Owen J. Duffy); Elaine Cameron-Weir (by Frances Loeffler); Jacky Connolly (by Fiona Alison Duncan); Sara Cwynar (by Durga Chew-Bose); Eliza Douglas (by Anna Gritz); Olivia Erlanger (by Clément Delépine); Louisa Gagliardi (by Pierre-Alexandre Mateos & Charles Teyssou); Rochelle Goldberg (by Rose Bouthillier); Lauren Halsey (by Ceci Moss); Celia Hempton (by Nicoletta Lambertucci); Lena Henke (by Aria Dean); Melike Kara (by Gregor Quack); Maggie Lee (by Whitney Mallett); Dana Lok (by Laura Phipps); Jumana Manna (by Kate Sutton); Beatrice Marchi (by Attilia Fattori Franchini); Jill Mulleady (by Maurin Dietrich); Julia Phillips (by Ruba Katrib); Megan Rooney (by Laura McLean-Ferris); Tschabalala Self (by Antwaun Sargent); Diamond Stingily (by Sara O’Keeffe); Martine Syms (by Ciara Moloney); Dena Yago (by Josephine Graf).

To present this awesome group of artists, “three differing, but nevertheless related covers” expressly conceived by Swiss artist Claudia Comte “bring together regimented structure with the artist’s characteristic playfulness. A hard-edged geometric black and white pattern serves as the backdrop for a soft organic donut-shaped wooden sculpture. The effect is a head-spinning optical illusion, traversed with carefree wit.” (Samuel Leuenberger)

CURA. 25 will premier both at Liste (June 12 to 18) and with its solo booth at Art Basel (June 13 to 18), where Comte’s huge installation NOW I WON will be situated on the main Messeplatz, featuring an exciting funfair context, “a not-to-be-missed championship of manifold disciplines.”

The official launch party of the magazine will be held on Thursday 15 at SALTS in Birsfelden. Everyone is welcome!

In addition a special celebration of Comte’s work will take place during Art Basel, in collaboration with König Galerie and SALTS. Stay tuned / follow Claudia’s party / on invitation only.

CURA. 25 is distributed in the best international bookshops in Italy and abroad and via our website.
