The different sections allow the exploration and presentation of a wide range of artistic practices and are the facets of a single and organic research project, conducted through the pages of the magazine and also developed within the other activities of CURA. platform. The paper medium is intended as a dynamic and flexible exhibition space in constant evolution, where the reader can discover the most interesting expressions of contemporary visual arts.
CURA. 25 summer issue celebrates its special edition, dedicated to 25 (+1) outstanding protagonists of the contemporary art scene, selected among the most interesting female artists of the new generation. Women are the protagonists of this iconic issue, thanks to a series of multi-faced portraits and to the contribution of an international board of critics and curators.
