ART NORTH is a new quarterly visual arts magazine with a primary focus on Scotland and the Far North. Our principle aim is to build upon and strengthen the connections that exist between Scotland and her Nordic and Scandinavian neighbours, as well as the island territories of the North Atlantic, too. If ART NORTH is about anything it is about presenting the visual arts and crafts of the north in the truly international context that they deserve, and stimulating interest in the very best work being made today at the most northerly of European latitudes.
ART NORTH has been founded precisely to act as a point of contact via which a range of artistic and critical voices can come together and be heard, thus serving as a meaningful conduit for the outward flow of information about all that there is to celebrate about our arts from ‘the margins’. To achieve the broadest possible coverage of the arts and crafts that we report on, our team of writers and critics (located in twelve countries) has been assembled to fully represent even the remotest of locations – from Fair Isle to the Faroe Islands, Tromsø to Tiree.
