Free Online Art Magazines –

I love reading art magazines and spend lots of time reading them but many art magazines are unfortunately not particularly cheap. There is, however, a number of art magazines that publish issues of their magazine online which can be accessed for free. Now when I refer to an art magazine I mean a proper printed publication that produce digital versions of their magazine and not some amateur writing blog posts and calling it a magazine. The best free online art magazines I could find are:

CIRCA Art Magazine
CIRCA is Ireland’s leading magazine for contemporary visual arts. Appearing quarterly, its 112 full-colour pages contain news, reviews, previews, interviews, feature articles and a host of images. The magazine is dedicated to reflecting visual culture as it unfolds throughout Ireland while also reporting on important developments further afield. CIRCA is a vital resource for artists, academics, students, researchers, arts administrators, those working in related fields and all who are interested in visual culture in Ireland.
