MILLENNIUM MAGAZINES AT MOMA
The exhibition Millennium Magazines organized by Rachael Morrison and David Senior of the MoMA Library, explores the various ways in which contemporary artists and designers utilize the magazine format as an experimental space for the presentation of artworks and text, since 2000.
Located at the Lewis B. and Dorothy Cullman Education and Research Building til May 14, the works on view represent a broad array of international titles (including PARIS, LA) within this genre, from community-building newspapers to image-only photography magazines to conceptual design projects. The contents illustrate a diverse range of image-making, editing, design, printing, and distribution practices. There are obvious connections to the past lineage of artists’ magazines and little architecture and design magazines of the 20th century, as well as a clear sense of the application of new techniques of image-editing and printing methods. Assembled together, these contemporary magazines provide a first-hand view into these practices and represents the MoMA Library’s sustained effort to document and collect this medium.
