1. Burlington Contemporary: http://contemporary.burlington.org.uk/ Every week, Burlington Contemporary will publish reviews of current exhibitions and recent books on contemporary art across the world, written by leading critics, artists and scholars. The reviews will be joined by an online journal, to be published three times a year from late 2018 onward. This will present cutting-edge research on recent art, written to the highest academic standards, yet accessible to a wide international audience.

2. Sam Francis Online Catalogue Raisonné Project: https://cr.samfrancisfoundation.org
The Sam Francis: Online Catalogue Raisonné Project is a scholarly resource dedicated to the life and oeuvre of the American-born abstract expressionist Sam Francis (1923–1994). This first installment documents all currently known unique works on paper and canvas and panel paintings attributed to the artist from 1945 through 1949. Given Francis’s prolific career, the Sam Francis Foundation will regularly release portions of the catalogue raisonné sequentially as we continue our research and documentation. It is our intention to not only provide a historical record of Francis’s artworks but also to embrace his creative and innovative spirit by offering a catalogue that evolves and changes as new information comes to light.

The exhibitions collected here trace Hans Ulrich Obrist’s journey from contemporary art to an expanded field including art, architecture, literature, philosophy, and science. The trajectory begins, temporally, with World Soup, the kitchen show in which Obrist brought together artists like Fischli/Weiss and Hans-Peter Feldmann for his first show, held in the kitchen of his studio.
