CURA. 31 is out now featuring essays on Rebecca Ackroyd, Farah Al Qasimi, Bianca Bondi, Maja Čule, Nikita Gale, Ilana Harris-Babou, Jamila Johnson-Small, Valerie Keane, Jade Kuriki Olivo (Puppies Puppies), Lady Skollie, Kris Lemsalu, Miriam Laura Leonardi, Precious Okoyomon, Hannah Perry, Diane Severin Nguyen, Heji Shin, Sung Tieu, Cassidy Toner, Cajsa von Zeipel, Issy Wood, Zadie Xa, and Yuli Yamagata

CURA.31 is a special issue devoted to 22 women artists—among the most representative of the new generation—and explores the plurality, diversity, and complexity of today’s artistic practices. It is another unmissable issue that continues a previous investigation into the powerful presence and key role of women artists within the contemporary art scene, re-affirming and pointing out the basic rights of equality and pluralism. 

This is tomorrow!

Check it out and collect the three different—already iconic—covers by artists Farah Al Qasimi, Zadie Xa, and Jade Kuriki Olivo (Puppies Puppies): Al Qasimi with her critical quest on stereotypical feminine beauty standards; Zadie Xa with her fantastical narratives at the intersection between experimentation and tradition; and Jade Kuriki Olivo with a bold portrait. Each cover highlights the cutting-edge practices of artists whose divergent approaches to art, performance, and politics speak of the intrinsic resistance, of the emancipatory, and of the fluid state of what it means to be a (woman) artist in today’s wavering world.

The official magazine issue launch will take place at Art Basel, Basel (June 11–16, 2019). Pass by our booth (Z 14, in the Magazine Sector) and at Liste’s collective booth (June 10–16, 2019).

You can buy CURA. in the best museums’ stores and bookshops around the world, or you can order your copy on our website. Shipping costs are crazy, so we really suggest you get off the sofa and go grab a copy at your trusted bookstore!
