SPARTA WATHEN HALL SPRING LECTURE: Caravaggio on the Cover, Hockney on the Homepage: An Art Magazine in the 21st Century

How can an art magazine make itself relevant in the 21st century? Apollo editor and publisher Thomas Marks explores the purpose of art magazines, looking back at the 95-year history of Apollo to discuss how the publication has evolved to reflect the changing nature of the art world – and asking how far it might hold that world to account. He discusses how the magazine and its competitors have adapted their editorial direction and publishing strategies to meet the challenges of the digital era, and explains why – for art publications, at least – the demise of print has been greatly overstated.
