The new volume of this independent series brings together the stray dogs of contemporary art: Charley 05 features artists that are remained isolated, forgotten, proudly secluded or sightly unnoticed, in spite of their visionary work.
Mixing professionals and amateurs, cult figures and unknown, Charley 05 composes a gallery of obsessions. It collects the art of unheard prophets, volontary outcasts, great solitary masters and freaks.
Celebrating the extreme subjectivity of nearly 100 artists, Charley 05 questions accepted hierarchies by insinuating new, infective doubts.
Charley 05 looks at the periphery, or maybe just sideways, trying to escape from the center.
All texts are taken from various web sites, mostly from Wikipedia (therefore facts and figures may not be represented in the utmost accuracy). Images, texts and data have been appropriated and edited (artists and authors are thanked in advance): Charley is the shareware of art history.

is a contemporary art publication series edited by Maurizio Cattelan
Massimiliano Gioni and Ali Subotnick.
A do-it-yourself magazine, Charley
is an inclusive publication relying on assimilation, rather than on selection : Charley
is a machine for redistribution, a mechanism for spreading and exploiting information, rumors, and communication. Like most information, it is partial, unstable, and untrustworthy. There are no hierarchies and no favorites in Charley
: it flirts equally with celebrity and failure. Charley
is a multiform creature, bound to transform with each issue. Charley
is a pre-digested combine, with pages assembled from catalogues, brochures, press clips, postcards, and other visuals. But what is Charley
is a new publication on emerging artists. Prominent curators, writers, artists, and other arts professionals from around the world were asked to suggest up to 10 up-and-coming artists and/or submit materials on the artists for inclusion in Charley
. 400 art makers from around the globe responded, and each of them is represented by one page of Charley
