Letter From the Editor 

A look at two very different cities that share a common objective: to attract, sustain, and grow a flourishing arts ecosystem for the 21st century.

Decolonizing the Ethnographic Museum: Contemporary Art and the Weltmuseum Wien 
Christoph Chwatal 
Europe's museums turn to institutional rebrands and infusions of contemporary art to update their imperial-era collections — but are these efforts enough>

Viva Vienna 
Francesca Gavin 
Young gallerists inject Austria's primary city with cultural capital, fresh program strategies, and plenty of teamwork. 

Behind the Scenes  
Slight Agitation: Gelitin
In monument-rich Milan, a Vienna collective tears down—then rebuilds—the elements of classical architecture.  

Claire Dempster

Artist Project
Janna Ireland

A call for a public building, designed to catalyze and commune with Culture. 

Artist Project
Fragments From Las Vegas

Fashion Project

Fashion week is dead. Long live these new looks, from a design collaborative that turned an NY art gallery into an immersive retail experience inspired by the last daughters of the Russian Empire.

Alice Bucknell 
Between reality and escapism, magic and engineering, there is Florida, where the swamp is an unlikely breeding ground for global cultural capital and investment. 

Artist Project 
Joel Gregory 
After #FOSTA and the Stop Enabling Sex Workers Act, an homage to the anonymous intimacy of America's most influential classifieds section. 

Daniel Fuller
Put this supercharged word in front of any form of cultural production — sculptural, musical, architectural, visual — and you'll emancipate your art from the heroes of the past.
