Out of print journals of artist writing from the 1970s-1980s. Under the radar and frequently unassuming, these issues contain works by many of the era’s heavy hitters. Browse through the three periodicals and you’ll find Barbara Kruger, Richard Prince, Carl Andre, Rosemary Mayer, Mike Kelley, John Ashbery, Joe Brainard, Claes Oldenburg, and more.

Whitewalls, founded in 1978, began as a publication for artists working with language, featuring contributions from many prominent figures in text and language-driven art and concrete poetry.

Herbert George founded Tracks in 1974 as a journal of artist’s writings, often by painters or sculptors, including texts on work, text as work, and previously unpublished writings. Contemporaneous with Whitewalls and Top Stories, Tracks’ focus diverged slightly in its focus on artistic process in addition to completed work. Contributions include performance notes, drafts, and supplementary commentary by artists on their preexisting works.

Unmuzzled Ox was a journal of poetry, art, and politics founded by Michael Andre in 1971 in New York City. Regular contributors included John Cage, Allan Ginsberg, Gregory Corso, Margaret Atwood, and Daniel Berrigan.
