un Projects occupies a unique space in Australia’s contemporary art publishing landscape, a nexus that links dialogue across the arts community. We provide a platform for engagement with local and independent practice, engaging deeply with critical art discourse and expanding audiences for artists, writers and independent art spaces.
Our flagship publication is the biannual un Magazine, guest edited annually and distributed for free in print and online. un Magazine comprises original, rigorous and innovative arts writing, with new voices sitting alongside some of Australia’s most significant art writers. Complementing the magazine is the digital un Extended, publishing reviews and conversations monthly, as well as one-off publishing projects and partnered programs.
As mainstream Australian media offers less and less coverage of visual art – particularly the independent sector – the role of un Projects in fostering critical dialogue, and encouraging excellence and innovation around contemporary visual arts, is increasingly important.
un Projects has a long history of championing, mentoring and supporting emerging voices, First Nations practitioners, established critics and diverse and independent arts writers. With your support, we will continue to do so, taking a leadership role in fostering dialogue, connectivity and accessibility around contemporary visual art.
Committed to inclusivity, everything that we publish is free, but ALL contributors are paid. Your generous donation will help us pay the artists, writers, editors, designers and mentors we work with.
