Product Description

Table of contents / boiler plate below:
THE SEEN, Chicago’s International Journal of Contemporary & Modern Art, features in-depth writing on exhibitions, as well as highlight essays, artist profiles, and reviews.
Born out of a need for international art criticism within the city and context of Chicago’s thriving art scene, THE SEEN was founded in 2013 by Editor-in-Chief Stephanie Cristello, and has expanded to become the only Chicago-based exclusive contemporary art criticism journal now to be distributed in museums across Europe and the United States. With a network of Staff Writers reporting from around the world, THE SEEN features exclusive pieces and new commissions on the best in international contemporary art, with special edition inserts that meld the art object and the printed page.

The cover of Issue 09 features a detail of an installation by Danish artist Stine Deja in collaboration with Marie Munk, entitled Synthetic Seduction (2019). The work explores how technology strives to bridge the gulf of the uncanny valley (the notion that humanoid objects that appear almost, but not exactly, like real human beings) to make personal devices as life-like as possible.
