Burlington Contemporary is a new online journal dedicated to new research and informed opinion on recent art.
Started in Autumn 2018 by the long-established fine and decorative arts focused Burlington Magazine, this new focus and celebration of the contemporary art world is intended to address the question of how to write art history for art made today. Reviews of contemporary exhibitions are published weekly, in addition to a free access, peer-reviewed academic journal published online three times per year.
The design balances delicately between bringing across the Burlington brand, and creating a defined and reputable brand of its own; as well as presenting a forward-looking face chiming with contemporary art. The website is fully responsive across all devices. The fully flexible and varied template layouts vary according to content type, incorporating image-heavy articles, responsive listings for articles, and a lightbox function to enlarge images.
