"Artforum" is an international monthly magazine specializing in contemporary art.


The magazine is published ten times a year, September through May, along with an annual summer issue. Characterized by its 10½ inch square format, with each cover devoted to the work of a single artist, the magazine is widely known as a decisive voice in its field.Fact|date=August 2008

As well as in-depth articles and reviews of contemporary art, the magazine features book reviews, columns on cinema and popular culture, and numerous full-page advertisements from prominent galleries around the world.


"Artforum" was founded in 1962 in San Francisco. The magazine moved to Los Angeles in 1965 before settling in New York in 1967, where it maintains offices today. The move to New York roughly coincided with a shift in the style of work championed by the magazine, moving away from late Modernism and towards Minimal Art and Conceptual Art and providing a platform for artists such as Robert Smithson, Donald Judd, and Sol Lewitt.


A book by Amy Newman chronicling the early history of the magazine, "Challenging Art: Artforum 1962-1974", was published by Soho Press in 2000.
