ART21 Magazine

As part of Art21’s array of programming designed to illuminate the creative process, the Art21 Magazineprovides a space for insightful writing on contemporary art and artists. Here, you’ll find our bimonthly issues as well as news on Art21 films and programs. The Art21 Magazine, which was previously the Art21 Blog, is available exclusively online.

Art21 Magazine issues are published six times per year and devoted to a single theme. Led by an invited guest editor with a connection to the theme at hand, the articles in these issues are populated by our team of regular contributors, invited writers selected by the magazine’s editors, and submissions from readers.


  • Launched in 2007, the Art21 Blog underwent its third and most significant redesign in 2013 and was renamed the Art21 Magazine. With this change, the site shifted from a guest blogging program to bimonthly thematic issues.
  • Art21 Magazine readers are primarily based in the United States, but the publication also has significant audiences in the United Kingdom, Canada, France, Australia, and Germany.
  • To date, a group of regular contributors and a rotating cast of guest writers have published over 3,900 blog posts and articles.
