Great resource on contemporary art.
M/E/A/N/I/N/G Online original twenty hard copy issues of the journal, which were published from 1986-1996, have been published online on Jacket2 Reissues, an archival platform for magazines committed to poetry and poetics. Reissues editor Danny Snelson provides a little background on the journal
Founded in December of 1986 by editors Susan Bee and Mira Schor, M/E/A/N/I/N/G provided a timely vehicle for an expanded practice of art criticism from its locus in New York City. Reflecting on the origins of the magazine in an introduction to the final issue, the editors write: “we felt the need for an alternative to the market orientation of mainstream art magazines and the frequently exclusionary theoretical orientation of more academic journals, both of which seemed distant from the actual creative lives of a majority of thoughtful and informed working visual artists.” In twenty issues published over the course of a decade, M/E/A/N/I/N/G indexes the most compelling questions of its time while offering a wide range of informative and provocative critical perspectives that remain contemporary.
