Nº1 / 2013


You Are Cordially Invited is a new kind of art magazine. The launch issue presents a two-dimensional art fair with an international line-up of galleries, showing recent –and often still available– works of art. To help point out the manifold perceptions on art the exhibition is supported by ‘guided tours’, which connects a variety of disciplines such as art, architecture, fashion, design, art history and literature. This way the world of art is entered through different perspectives.

You Are Cordially Invited aims to create a broader audience for contemporary art and culture. Addressing a new generation of art collectors You Are Cordially Invited functions as a professional guide to global trends, references, context and above all beautiful imagery.
