Printed Project

Printed Project is the journal published by Visual Artists Ireland from 2003 to 2010. Printed Project was a collaboration amongst artists, critics and curators, writers and readers devoted to making sense of contemporary art and culture.

Printed Project was published twice a year and edited on a rotating basis by invited curatorial editors. Each publication gathers and presents thought and opinion on issues and arguments that enliven dialogue and debate on art and the wider culture of our present day.

With Printed Project, Visual Artists Ireland set out to meet the need felt within an expanding art industry for a not-for-entertainment art publication. Simple and modest in design and production the journal brings the best of comprehensive thought to bear on present art practices and on the shared consequences artists and audiences face as our culture backs into the future.
