Revisionaries

The genesis of the Tokion art book, Revisionaries, is an interesting one: the mag wanted to do a book that celebrated its history but when nothing could be decided on, the book became a reflection of the progress and subsequent democratization of the art world through the lens of Tokion coverage. “Now there are ten thousand galleries and there are so many different communities of people that are into art,” says Ken Miller, curator of the book and former Editor-In-Chief of Tokion. Inside, you’ll find work from the likes of Ed Templeton, Assume Vivid Astro Focus, Chris Johanson, and Rita Ackermann. Essentially it’s about celebrating the history of Tokion without actually being about Tokion. “The thing that defined the magazine was the artists that were in it,” says Miller. “That was really the personality of the magazine.”
