The Contemporary Visual Arts Magazine for Northern Latitudes

Published from the Far Northern Highlands of Scotland and distributed internationally, Art North was established to celebrate the work of contemporary artists, makers and venues throughout the Far North, highlighting the cultural connections that exist between Scotland and her neighbours in the Nordic, Scandinavian, Baltic and Arctic territories, as well as Canada’s Maritime Provinces and Northern Territories, too. Our definition of ‘neighbours’ is deliberately broad, whether they be geographically close, or ‘neighbours of the mind.’

 
 

Coverage of artists and venues ignored by the mainstream art press

Art criticism has changed dramatically over the last decade. Today, the mainstream art press can often be more fixated on the celebrity of the artist rather than their 'work'. It's the work we’re interested in – not  the lifestyle. That was one of the reasons why Art North was established. It is also the case that the art being made in our urban centres is getting ever-wider coverage, while the art being made on what are considered ‘the margins’ often goes unreported. The urban centres have an important part to play, of course, but centres of excellence exist elsewhere, too!

Commentary on the arts shaped by a rapidly changing cultural map

‘Home’ is a subjective concept, yet here’s a thought; Art North magazine is situated closer to the Faroe Islands (390km away) than it is to London (824km), and there’s little in terms of distance between Tórshavn and Edinburgh! Oslo is far closer than Rome, too, which is near-equidistant from here to Nuuk, southwest Greenland. Mainly due to geo-political developments and our climate in crisis, our sense of who our true neighbours are seems urgently up for review. Do we measure neighbourliness in terms of shortened travel times that globalisation has offered, or the shared cultural experience that exists between ourselves and those closest to ‘home’?

New takes and fresh analysis on the visual arts of Scotland and Northern Europe

Run by a small but committed core team in the Northern Highlands of Scotland, the real strength of Art North lies not just in the features we commission, nor the collective experience of the magazine’s time-served writers and critics throughout Northern Europe, but also in our often-unexpected pairing of novelists, poets, playwrights, and musicians with artists, exhibitions and events, intended to foster ‘new takes’ on contemporary art, and provide fresh analysis on the pressing matters affecting artists and contemporary craftmakers today.
