Millenium Magazines at MoMA
Mezzanine, The Lewis B. and Dorothy Cullman Education and Research Building
The Museum of Modern of Modern Art, New York, NY
February 20 — May 14, 2012

Millennium Magazines, a survey of artists’ magazines published since 2000, explores the various ways in which contemporary artists utilize the magazine format as an experimental space for the presentation of works and text. Throughout the 20th century, the activities of groups and collectives were often codified first in the informal context of a magazine or journal; this exhibition, drawn from the holdings of the MoMA Library, follows the practice into the 21st century. The works on view range from community-building newspapers to image-only photography magazines to conceptual projects. Methods of design, image-making, editing, printing, and distribution are examined, and there are obvious connections to the past lineage of artists’ magazines and smaller architecture and design magazines. This brief tour of contemporary artists’ magazines provides a view into these practices and represents MoMA Library’s effort to document and collect this medium.
Organized by Rachael Morrison and David Senior, MoMA Library.
