From the Editor-in-Chief, Art Lantern
As the newly appointed Editor-in-Chief of Art Lantern, the new publication associated with the New Art Examiner, I am pleased to carry on the tradition established by Derek Guthrie and his associates, past and present at the New Art Examiner. With No Fear nor Favour, and acceptance of all articles and viewpoints, this new publication will cooperate fully with the New Art Examiner, dually publishing articles with only the editorials differing, as they are written by Daniel Nanavati, in the UK and in the US, by myself. Although we may hire different writers for the articles in each publication, Art Lantern and the New Art Examiner will feature all content from writers associated with each publication. These cooperative magazines, with similar aims, to educate, speak truth to, and expose the good and the bad, the established and the questionable in worldwide art establishments and venues aims to question and analyze art and the art market, contemporary, past and future. I welcome you, dear reader to Art Lantern and hope you fully participate in reading and responding to the articles herein.
In our inaugural publication, following this introduction, two writers were assigned to attend Art Miami, including the Miami Basel art fair, the Design Miami art fair, and surrounding art fairs. Their observations and analyses are their own, as is the practice of the publications. I was unable to attend the art fairs in Miami due to a conflicting deinstallation of a collateral exhibit that I curated at La Biennale d’Arte, Venezia, (the Venice Biennale 2022). Based on my past attendance at Art Basels in Switzerland and Miami, a future article will compare and contrast art fairs and Biennales, Triennales and non-commercial exhibitions including Documenta. It is this firsthand observation of exhibitions by our writers and myself that I hope will enlighten and inform our audience, leading to further discussion all in the name of art.
