ARTNET RELEASES ARTNET NEWS

February 2014

Discover the world’s first dedicated 24-hour global art market newswire. artnet News consists of four broad sections:

Art Market   Art World   People   In Brief


ARTNET MAGAZINE TO
CEASE PUBLICATION


Artnet Magazine, the first and best-known art magazine to be published solely on the internet, is ceasing publication, effective immediately. This difficult decision is an economic one, and reflects the fact that during its 16 years of digital life, the magazine was never able to pay its own way. At present, plans call for Artnet Magazine to remain available in an archive on Artnet.com.

Additionally, the French- and German-language publications are also being closed. Artnet thanks the many contributors to the magazine in all its versions, and wishes them the best for the future. Walter Robinson, the editor of Artnet Magazine in the U.S., is seeking opportunities elsewhere, as are his editorial staff, news editor Rachel Corbett and assistant editor Emily Nathan.

The Madness of Art is a web series that Jim Kempner started filming a decade ago but only began posting in 2010. It is based on his experiences as an art dealer in Chelsea.
