4 Gwen Allen Artists' Magazines

ARTISTS’ MAGAZINES by Gwen Allen. Cambridge, Massachusetts and London, The MIT Press, 2011, 26 x 19cm. Sewn binding, new/mint, 368pp b/w and colour illustrations, extensive essays and detailed appendix: A Compendium of Artists’ Magazines from 1945–1989, plus selected bibliography and index.


During the 1960s and 1970s, magazines became an important new site of artistic practice, functioning as an alternative exhibition space for the dematerialised practices of Conceptual art. Gwen Allen looks at those magazines most important in their heyday and compiles a comprehensive, illustrated directory of hundreds of others.
