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.
