Art Magazines

In this episode of 25 for 25 we explore materials that get students excited: print periodicals that combine visual art, literature, commentary and other forms of expression in ways that challenge us as viewers and readersLike short-lived experimental magazines of the late 1950s through the early 1970s, these art magazines defy easy categorization and exist outside commercial publishing outlets. They flourish in multiple medias and forums including print, digital, public spaces, and social media. Like artists books, some art magazines are art projects themselves, intentionally experimenting with structure and ideas. Recent additions to the Archives include periodicals that document artist collaborations and blur boundaries between art and literature. When incorporated into a student project, exhibit or instruction session, these materials can stimulate conversation and inspire new ways of seeing and connecting.
