An annual online journal drawing together the art world with wider social, economic and cultural issues.
The Artquest Almanack is an online journal that draws together the art world with wider social, economic and cultural issues, setting the arts in a broader context. Highlighting our annual theme and collecting together texts, research and projects, it publishes articles and interviews commissioned by Artquest alongside research beyond the art world.
The Almanack aims to broaden debates in the arts by presenting external evidence on economic and social trends, and to highlight artists’ motivations and methodologies that can have beneficial impact on the rest of society.
Our theme for 2018 was ‘space‘, with ‘work‘ featuring for 2019. Our 2020 theme was intended to be around ‘equity’, now with a new additional focus on the covid-19 / coronavirus pandemic. With new projects being developed to help artists during and after the lockdown the Almanack may also be delayed this year.
