we have over 10 years experience producing exceptional guides for the art world
Through time Lightbox established a network which makes each My Art Guide a curated project containing information on the most interesting exhibitions and events taking place in town during major international art gatherings, such as the Venice Biennale and Art Basel.
The contents of each publication are handpicked by three prestigious names from the local contemporary art scene to form the editorial committee. Art spaces, restaurants and hotels are listed following a quality criteria. The guide contains also a “day-by-day” agenda of all the openings and events; city maps, information on transportation and useful numbers to be oriented in each destination. Each guide can come in three formats: paper pocket guide, website and iOS app.
The brain-child of artist duo MAP Office (Valérie Portefaix and Laurent Gutierrez) and our Editor-in-Chief, Mara Sartore, the guide is a totally non-profit project created to raise awareness among the international art community on the environment issues related to the sea. It is not a navigation book, but a poetic yet scientific compendium about the seas and the oceans, with the aim of changing the existing dominant tendency to observe the world from the land. The contributors are scientists, oceanographers, activists, and artists.
Presented in Basel in June 2016 during the Art Basel week, My Art Guide East Central Europe explores the contemporary art scene in the so-called “Viségrad Four” countries plus Romania. Produced with the support of local patrons Krzysztof Madelski (Poland), Robert Runtak (Czech Republic), Eduard Matak (Slovakia), Péter Küllői (Hungary), Florin Pogonaru, (Romania), the guide features an introduction by András Szántó.
