THE ART NEWSPAPER and its network
Founded in 1990 by Anna Somers Cocks to a concept by the Italian publisher Umberto Allemandi, The Art Newspaper is an online and print publication with offices in London and New York. It provides an unrivalled news service about the art world, fed by its network of sister editions, which together have more than 50 correspondents working in more than 30 countries, with editorial offices in London, Turin, New York, Paris, Moscow, Beijing and Athens. In 2014, Inna Bazhenova became the owner of The Art Newspaper International Edition and the licensed network in Italy, Greece, France and Russia.
In addition to the news, it publishes reviews and commentary by major players in the art scene, including Nicholas Serota, the outgoing director of the Tate, Glenn Lowry, the director of the Museum of Modern Art, New York, Michael Govan, the director of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Thelma Golden, the director of the Studio Museum, New York, the Venice Biennale curator Robert Storr, the artists Theaster Gates, Grayson Perry, Elmgreen & Dragset and Shirin Neshat—and many more.
