Thank You For Making 2017 Amazing!
Thank you for an amazing 2017! With your support, Create! Magazine was able to build a beautiful community. Over the past 12 months we published the work of hundreds of inspiring artists and got to share it with like-minded people across the globe.
There were so many memorable moments this year, including having our publication in London, New York, Amsterdam, and more. We were a proud media partner of Art Miami Fairs during Art Basel Miami, and I (Ekaterina) even got to meet a few of you in person (that was the most exciting part)! All these experiences reminded me of how important it is to have this strong, supportive community. Our artists do not compete with each other, but keep each other accountable, inspired, and motivated in their studio practice and that’s something worth celebrating.
A new year is just around the corner, and the first thing I want to do is encourage us all to take a deep breath and give ourselves a pat on the back. Let’s be proud of everything we were able to accomplish and reflect on this journey with gratitude before we make our big plans for 2018.
For Create!, plans include continuing our collaborations with inspiring leaders in the art world, starting with our recent curator The TAX Collection who will be guiding us into the new year with their selections for the February issue. We are serious admirers of their curation and extraordinary taste in contemporary art. Next, we are excited to have Danielle Krysa, aka the Jealous Curator, jury the April edition. We cannot wait to see what she picks!
Our focus for 2018 is to create an even stronger bond within members of our platforms, facilitate more in-person interactions in meet ups and celebrate our publication with launch parties. We have plans for more curatorial projects that support the career development of our artists.
Our online shop will be on a little break during the month of January, but will resume at the beginning of February with exciting updates once our new edition launches. All new subscriptions will start with the February edition.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for being a part of this magazine, lovely group of makers, and beautiful human beings.
Let’s make 2018 the best year yet! Cheers!
