Dear Art Radar Readers,


The Art Radar team regrets to announce the closure of the journal by the end of December 2018 due to the ill health of its founder and patron.

While publication of new content has ceased on 28 November 2018, with the last newsletter going out on 29 November, the archive of several thousand articles will remain available online for up to two years.

Xuan Mai Ardia.We would like to find a new patron, institution or library willing to acquire the archive and make it available to artists, students and scholars for the long term.

We would also be happy to talk to interested parties about taking over Art Radar intact as a going concern. This would include its network of dozens freelance writers around Asia and infrastructure of tens of thousands of followers across various social media platforms intact.

We are proud to have created an important archive documenting the rise of the contemporary Asian art scene from 2008 to 2018. This ten-year period was pivotal in Asian art history: it was a time when art fairs first emerged in Asia, international galleries arrived in the region, new art schools were set up, contemporary art museums were planned and established, and international interest in Asian contemporary art began to flourish.

Our work has been referenced or featured in university course material, international press and museum publications, among others.

If you would like more information please contact Art Radar Founder and Executive Editor Kate Cary Evans on


If you have a contact who might want to learn more about this opportunity please help us out by forwarding this message to them. If you are a student it would be a great help if you could ask your tutors or librarians if they are interested.

Thank you to all our readers and followers, writers and artists for their support and involvement over the last ten years.
