Is an online magazine that creates a forum for interpretive experimentation and gives a face to the people who make museums a vibrant presence in the world. This magazine is here because we all “know” that art is important, but do we always know why?

Looking at art can provide a much needed refuge for reflection, sympathy, quietude, inspiration, and even ecstasy in this increasingly chaotic world. Looking further can deepen knowledge of cultures and artistic practice, develop and hone observational skills, reveal insights into history that other documents can’t, and encourage creative, analytical, and autonomous thinking.

Art can be funny, and it can make you cry, too. We want you to find a way in. And the best way to find a way into anything is to look closely and ask a lot of questions. Enjoy.
