Alongside such unique artists of authorship like Jim Shaw, Ella & Pitr and Tim Kerr, the new year brings the promise of a much wider vista of interactive visual traditions, and in all probability discovering a couple of heroes along the way in which. Let’s begin the new narrative. Also in the January 2016 issue: Zaria Forman takes to the air for Antarctica as an artist-in-place of dwelling aboard the National Geographic Explorer.
