Flash Art is an international bimonthly magazine and publishing platform dedicated to thinking about contemporary art, exploring the evolving cultural landscape through the work of leading artists, writers, curators and others.
One of Europe’s oldest art magazines, Flash Art was founded in Rome in 1967, before relocating to Milan in 1971, and was originally bilingual, published in both Italian and English. In 1978 two separate editions were launched: Flash Art International and Flash Art Italia. Today the magazine remains one of the most recognizable and widely read publications of its kind, and is distributed in 87 countries. In 2011 Flash Art launched its first iPad digital edition, which contains special interactive features and extra material.
Flash Art’s new website flashartonline.com is the magazine’s online platform, maintaining the vibrancy and depth of the print editions, but also featuring news, extra reviews, and responsive commentary by a group of editors and contributors located around the world. Thanks to its responsive and flexible design, the website adapts to all types of device and screen resolution.
Over the coming years Flash Art intends to publish its entire archive online, giving readers and researchers access to the largest contemporary art archive online, spanning 45 years of history.
