Journal: A Contemporary Art Magazine, was established as the journalistic arm of the Los Angeles Institute of Contemporary Art in 1974, dedicated to accommodating a growing voracious consumptive need for alternative press on art and artists. It lived through many changes of editors and contributing staff until shuttering (along with LAICA) in 1990. Beautifully produced, if not always quarterly, Journal: A Contemporary Art Magazine is a lasting remnant of an exciting era in American art history designed to maintain its relevance well beyond its years of production.
