This issue of Flash Art comes with a new brand identity, introducing a seasonal publication schedule starting from fall 2020. A new logo also heralds this change: an apparent return to the visual identity of Flash Art, albeit revised and updated with an evolving graphic layout and doubled page count and contents to offer readers a more in-depth, discursive experience. This issue explores the dynamic hybridization of the languages of contemporary art, focusing on the theme of the curatorial process—the exhibition as a moment of reflection and revelation with infinite potential for investigation.

A painter and an inventor, Eugène Frey (1863-1930) pioneered techniques of animated sets for the theatre at the same time period as the cinema was invented. While he is contextualized beside the creations of Loie Fuller, Georges Méliès or Lotte Reiniger, he is reinterpreted by the artist João Maria Gusmão. First publication devoted to the work of Eugène Frey, the luxurious catalogue of the exhibition at the New National Museum of Monaco presents texts by Stéphane Tralongo (University of Lausanne) and Laurent Mannoni (Cinémathèque française), as well as a work of fiction by João Maria Gusmão.
