Artforum
Vol. 1, n. 1 – current

We were wondering what an art magazine’s evolution might say about about art, magazines, and everything else, so we dug in the stacks and held the first and latest Artforum side by side. At a glance, the contributors look different, the contents have grown into genres, the reviews expanded, the gallery ads reached out, the interviews got sexy, the list suggests a response to conformity, the fights to be made have shifted targets, but through it all, like a real friend, that cover font remains the same.
