Almost 25 years have passed since Jean-Hubert Martin organized the groundbreaking exhibition “Magiciens de la Terre,” held in Paris at the Centre Pompidou and the Grand Hall at La Villette. Here, Martin reflects on developments in international contemporary art since 1989, and looks ahead to Ilya & Emilia Kabakov’s Monumenta 2014 commission for the Grand Palais in Paris:

Anticipating the year to come, ART iT invited artist Yasumasa Morimura and curator Shinji Kohmoto to exchange ideas about the international exhibitions they are organizing in Yokohama and Kyoto, respectively. Morimura’s Yokohama Triennale 2014 addresses ideas of forgetting through the theme “ART Fahrenheit 451: Sailing into the sea of oblivion,” while Kohmoto’s inaugural PARASOPHIA: Kyoto International Festival of Contemporary Culture attempts to inject new intellectual life into an ancient city:
