Current Issue

Welcome to the New Fabrik!

With this issue, we catapult ourselves, and you, into new territory, in both a literal and metaphorical sense. Literally, although still Los Angeles-based, we’ve expanded our coverage beyond Southern California to include the major art centers of the western United States. Metaphorically speaking, as part of the natural evolution of the magazine, and in response to the prevail-ing socio-political-environmental-cultural issues of our times, we’ve made a concerted decision to address some of the bigger questions about the meaning of art and its current role in the human condition.

In terms of our expanded geographic and philosophical purview, this new direction represents a significant and—we think—exciting shift. You will notice the magazine has many more pages. These are filled with substantive commentary on, and critical analysis of, contemporary art. This issue presents 30 reviews of recent and current exhibitions at galleries and museums from the West Coast to Chicago, and from as far north as Seattle to Houston in the south.

We invite you to be transported!
