An introduction to our art journal
La Revue Cahiers d’Art was created in 1926 by Christian Zervos. His passion and ambition to produce a scholarly art journal led him to commission original artworks and research essays from some of the most brilliant minds and avant-garde artists of his generation.
The works of Pablo Picasso, Alexander Calder, Joan Miró and Henri Matisse were regularly featured as were poems by Paul Eluard and René Char and photographs by Dora Maar and Man Ray.
The 97 issues published between 1926 and 1960 quickly became references for researchers. La Revue afforded its loyal subscribers access to the historic effervescence in art, literature and design of the time. These publications are now highly sought-after.
Since its relaunch in 2012 by Staffan Ahrenberg, co-editors Sam Keller and Hans Ulrich Obrist, La Revue Cahiers d’Art continues to uphold its commitment to remain an experimental editorial space.
The 12 existing issues are the result of close collaborations with thought-provoking artists such as Ellsworth Kelly, Rosemarie Trockel, William Kentridge, Gabriel Orozco, John Giorno, Anne Imhof, Arthur Jafa, Christo and Cildo Meireles.
More than just an art journal, La Revue Cahiers d’Art is often conceived as an editorial ‘carte blanche’. The artist shares rarely seen before works, photographs, literary excerpts, accompanied by candid interviews revealing each artist‘s singular perspective.
