Arts Illustrated is an Indian based arts and design magazine dedicated to understanding the contemporary arts landscape and creating a more inclusive ecosystem for the arts in the country. It delves deeply into the visual arts and design narrative, offering a global and contemporary perspective to subjects, information and ideas that we believe, need to be heard by a larger audience. Our endeavour is to create an exciting read that reflects our ethos to inspire, evoke and enrich our readers. Our visually laid out chronicle of the creative landscape is published bi-monthly (once in two months) and is available across 12 key cities in India.
The first thing that comes to our minds when we say ‘ghosts’ is the supernatural; it belongs to another realm, the unexplained realm, and remains a mystery, one that is constantly colliding with the world of science, the perennially explained realm. But, we think, there is more. This issue we look at what it means to be invisible, to be ghost-like, to be confined to a space behind the curtain and still exist. We look at artist(e)s who truly engage with the word and understand its connotations in real life – in how, often, our reactions to the unknown become the opportunity for morality, philosophy and science to intermingle; in how we carry the ghosts of our memories; in how we create the ghosts of society; and how, even through the use of language (words and the arts), the ghosts of silence remain.
