Charley #03

 - Charley #03
A time machine, bringing out the past and casting it into a new light, Charley 03 presents 100 artists from the 80s and 90s. Suspended between nostalgia and archeology, Charley 03 writes a small history of what-ifs : a scenario that speaks about the instability of taste as it undermines the hierarchies of art history. Yesterday begins tomorrow.

Charley 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 really? 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.
Edited by Maurizio Cattelan, Massimiliano Gioni and Ali Subotnick.
