Art Currently Magazine Submission Guidelines 

Art Currently Magazine welcomes unique conversations around art and its ability to influence the world with intelligent points of view. We publish long-form features, interviews, diaries, studio visits, reviews, and opinion pieces on present and experimental discourses surrounding the art world; and about those who are shaping it.

The New York-based, independent magazine covers trends and news in all five boroughs and beyond. We are accepting stories based in the US with a prominent focus on the East Coast, but open to international opening and events.
