TORONTO – C Magazine announces the launch of C Online – marking the new and expanded online content presence from Canada’s premier art and criticism periodical. C Online features exciting new ways to read and engage with C Magazine, including a searchable archive, Explore features, online subscriptions, personal reading lists, and much more.
C Online is also introducing weekly reviews and three brand-new columns: Artist's Archive, Otherwise (a forthcoming column on Black contemporary art), and May Contain Pictures, where Cason Sharpe writes on artists' books. In addition, newly released articles from the current C Magazine Issue are available for reading through the new C Online.
In the first entry of May Contain Pictures, Cason Sharpe discusses a free mailer edition by Garrett Lockhart, which was released with the artist's multi-part project "RELAY." The pamphlet was published in 2022 by Parker Kay and the Centre for Experimental Research. In the first Artist's Archive column, Zinnia Naqvi considers self-reflection and critique in her film the Translation Is Approximate (2021), by engaging with C Magazine's archive.
Kate Monro, Executive Director and Publisher of C Magazine said, “C Magazine is an important forum for voices in the visual arts across our country. Many artists, art writers, curators, educators, researchers, students, and galleries hold the importance of C Magazine’s work close to heart. The opportunity to deliver our work to a larger audience is so exciting for our team and will only positively impact the Canadian arts community. We’re so thrilled for C Online to deliver what our current subscribers know and love while expanding the offering to reach new audiences across the country.”

About C Magazine
C Magazine, established in 1984, is a contemporary art and criticism periodical that functions as a forum for significant ideas in art and its contexts. Each issue explores a theme that is singularly engaged with emerging and prevailing perspectives through original art writing, criticism and artists’ projects. Our content focuses on the activities of contemporary art practitioners residing in Canada and Canadian practitioners living abroad—with an emphasis on those from Black, Indigenous, diasporic and other equity-seeking communities—as well as on international practices and dialogues. We are committed to facilitating meaningful, pluralistic, interdisciplinary, historically-engaged and imaginative conversations about art. In addition to publishing three print and digital issues of the magazine each year, we present educational workshops, programs, talks, and other events. We also mentor interns and facilitate two writing awards. C Magazine is published online and in print three times each year in April (Spring), August (Autumn), and December (Winter), by C The Visual Arts Foundation, a non-profit charitable organization established to present ideas, advance education and document contemporary visual art and artist culture.
