Modern Luxury Launches Annual December/January Arts Issue Logo

As the year comes to a close, December Issue profiles the most thought provoking, innovative artists of the day

LOS ANGELES - Dec 1 - Today the editors of Modern Luxury Media, the nation's largest luxury media company, release their annual Arts Issue, celebrating the art and artists across the country that are continuing to connect, create, and inspire our communities from coast to coast.

Each December, Modern Luxury presents its annual Arts Issue as a beautiful gift to its readers. This year, Modern Luxury’s team of editors across the country profiles the most thought-provoking, innovative and fascinating artists of the day. In this feature and throughout the issue, you will find modern masters like Amoako Boafo, Betye Saar, Fabiola Jean-Louis, Kerry James Marshall, Nathaniel Mary Quinn, Seek One, Mary Nelson Sinclair and Tim Tadder. These creatives are using the mediums as messages to push the conversation forward and ask challenging questions.

“Great art asks us to engage in these difficult conversations as it starts with the emotive expression first—often in its most raw and authentic state,” said Phebe Wahl, EVP of Editorial at Modern Luxury Media. “As we approach the holiday season, we are confident that this issue will inspire our readers to have thoughtful dialogues while looking inward to identify what types of art truly moves them.”

The cover star for the annual Arts Issue is multi-platinum recording artist Katy Perry who is gearing up to debut her inaugural residency at Resorts World Las Vegas. Known for her eccentric fashion choices, ever-changing hairstyles and infectious pop songs lies a musician whose love of modern art is present in her approach to her craft. In her interview with Modern Luxury, Perry pulls back the curtain on life in the spotlight and why she intends to utilize her love of art as a treat for fans as her Las Vegas residency will be the first to incorporate NFTs.

Also within this issue, Modern Luxury editors profile the CEO of Artsy, Mike Steib on his mission to expand the all-too often exclusive art world by arming buyers with better information and access.

The Arts Issue is available now to subscribers. Read the cover story and subscribe to the digital edition to explore more stories.
