ArtXX is an intervention and a fresh reaction to the often elitist world of art magazines that continues to ignore female, queer, trans, outsider, and non-white artists. In our quest to fill quite a large gap in the art publication business, we are attempting to create a magazine that will inform our audience about new and revolutionary ideas in art, expose our readers to a variety of mediums, and allow the artists to speak for and about their work.
Started in early 2008, ArtXX is the militant love child of three working artists. We do bi-annual limited print runs, we are self-produced, self-distributed, community funded, and we consider each copy of ArtXX to be a work of art in itself. Our goals are three-fold: to improve the visibility of a group of artists who are significantly marginalized on the basis of their gender and/or sexuality, to be a source of documentation for the legitimacy and ingenuitive creativity of this group, and to serve as a space of free artistic expression and a vehicle for social change through the avenue of independent media.
We will forever believe in the power of art and media to make radical transformations in the lives of its audience, just as we will forever believe in the power of the audience to make radical impressions on art and media.
