Art Africa unveils digital archive
Suzette Bell-Roberts: “This new archive is another string to our subscriptions bow.”

Art Africa is a quarterly publication that reports on the latest developments around contemporary art from Africa and the diaspora. The new archive is accessible across web, iOS and Android devices.

Founded in 2002, Art Africa writes art history from an African perspective. Through intellectual dialogue and discourse on the internationalism and multiculturalism of the arts from Africa, the title facilitates an easier navigation of the cultural and language differences of the continent. Every issue comprises insightful positioning pieces, in-depth interviews, features, profiles and reviews, says Exact Editions.

The cross-platform reading interface allows individual and institutional subscribers to easily jump between issues, whilst the comprehensive search function enables the instant location of specific terms, artists or pieces.

Art Africa is available in the Exact Editions shops for individuals and institutions.

Co-Founder Suzette Bell-Roberts commented: “This new archive is another string to our subscriptions bow. Art Africa is already a vital academic resource that is found on the library shelves of global art collectors, museums and gallery directors and artists, and the new digital edition will only expand our reach internationally.”

Managing Director of Exact Editions, Daryl Rayner, remarked: “The digital archive is a brilliant next step for Art Africa to continue its 18-year evolution. The magazine’s intelligent design makes it a delight to browse in the digital edition, and this new format will ensure that its important content reaches new eyes.”
