BOMB Magazine has been publishing conversations between artists of all disciplines since 1981. BOMB's founders—New York City based artists and writers—created BOMB because they saw a disparity between the way artists talked about their work among themselves and the way critics described it.
Today, BOMB is a multi-media publishing house that creates, disseminates, and preserves artist-generated content from interviews to artists’ essays to new literature. BOMB includes a quarterly print magazine, a daily online publication, and a digital archive of its previously published content from 1981 onward.
BOMB is a nonprofit 501c3 corporation. All donations are tax deductible and directly support our mandate to deliver the artist’s voice.
Donations of $50 or more come with a limited-edition Lawrence Weiner tote. Donations of $100 or more come with a tote plus a free subscription and acknowledgement on our patrons page.
BOMB extends its gratitude to the generous donors who made the launch of our new website possible. Thank you to the A.W. Mellon Foundation who supported the digitization, indexing (in progress), and navigation of BOMB’s content from 1981 onward, and to The National Endowment for the Arts, The Fiddlehead Fund, BOMB's Board of Trustees, and a "magnonymous" donor for funding the development and creation of this site.
