Electric Skin, a site which described itself as “a black art magazine focusing on articles that present new visions of art throughout the black diaspora,” was one of 12 blogs reviewed in Art In America's “Art in the Blogosphere” feature in 2005, but since that time appears to have dropped off the map. Until now that is. Now appearing as Code-Z, this online magazine has plans to relaunch in August. What can we expect from such a publication? According to their site:
- Art world insider news and information updated daily
- In-depth views into the lives and work of artists who push boundaries and push buttons
- Member profiles to connect with other visual creatives and the folks who like to hang out with them.
Considering that in the past Electric Skin has provided content such as a conversation between artist Chris Ofili and DJ Spooky and a three-part report on an art conference in Nigeria*, this is one launch I think we should all look forward to. That is assuming they set up RSS feeds for those of us who religiously check our newsreaders.
UPDATE: I am told RSS Feeds are part of their site development plans.
*I can't find the archives, so I've listed the noteworthy content mentioned in Art In America.
