After more than 50 years of history, Flash Art is ready for reinvention. Starting with this issue, Flash Art will become a seasonal publication. It has doubled its page count and contents to offer readers a more in-depth, discursive experience. A new logo also heralds this change: an apparent return to the visual identity of Flash Art, albeit revised and updated with an evolving graphic layout. The new logo is designed by Agenzia del Contemporaneo under the art direction of Alessio Avventuroso, with the exclusive “ABC Gravity” typeface designed by Dinamo—to be released in 2021.

This issue will explore the dynamic hybridization of the languages of contemporary art, focusing on the theme of the curatorial process—the exhibition as a moment of reflection and revelation with infinite potential for investigation. Central role in this landscape, Germano Celant (1940–2020) to whom Terry Smith and Pascale Krief essays pay tribute defining how the visionary curator and critic upended the criteria for curating and exhibiting contemporary art. 
These pages analyze in depth practices of artists such Liliane Lijncover story of this issue—Philippe Parreno’s work which tirelessly tests the limits of the exhibition format; the oral practice of Ian Wilson, as well as the curatorial abuses, as Françoise Roche points out in regard to Yona Friedman

Also in this issue Barbara London’s survey on sound-based art practices; Matthew Linde’s visual project on Masahiro Nakagawa’s 20471120; a conversation with The Kitchen, New York on the concept of artist residency in relation to the current states of art production through projects by Autumn Knight and Baseera KhanLetter from the City’s first chapter by Ivana Bašić—a brand new column conceived as a correspondance embodying artists thoughts as an overlap between the internal and external world.
