Millenium Magazines at MoMA

A showcase of internationally exciting indie print publications.

The Millenium Magazines exhibition at New York's MoMA presents a showcase of some of the most exciting experimental print publications in the world. MoMA's exhibition presents quite a selection of international titles (published since 2000), from image-only photography magazines to community-building newspapers, including some of our personal favourites:


First published in 2008, Apartamento is a magazine devoted to homes, living spaces and design solutions and in the past has profiled people from Chloe Sevigny to Sonic Youth.

"For too many people, being happy at home is pretty much an abstract idea, something they can't know or imagine, until it appears on some taste maker's must-have list, or in a magazine, or reposted on Tumblr. A home sweet home is not curated or produced by acquiring a perfect arrangement of chairs, lamps and friends. A real living space is made from living, not decorating. A bored materialist can't understand that a house has to become a home. It happens, not through perfection but by participation." Andy & Elsa Beach - Issue #07

Condiment - Adventures in Food and Form

This publication is also a project that explores the relationship between food and creativity, and food and community.

"This issue of Condiment has reminded us of the simple truth that we are living with food, not living for food. In this context, the aim shifts from accomplishment to a need for further exploration." Editor's note - Issue #02


Veneer Magazine is printed on various paper stocks using offset and letterpress printing techniques and is bound with hot glue.


Beginning in 2008, Quarterly is a long-distance project with bases in New York and LA between artists Jesse Hlebo and Justin Sloane, respectively. Its first issue, themed 'adaptation', featured an all black cover that was modified by your own finger prints.

Tell Mum Everything is OK

Based on ideas of participation, Tell Mum Everything is OK is entirely made up of reader submissions. Each issue is themed and showcases the work of unknown photographers, produced in both English and French.

Little Joe

Little Joe was born in 2010, providing discussions on film around subjects of sexuality and gender within a queer context.

Millenium Magazines is on now until May 14. MoMA is located at 11 West 53 Street, New York.
