PUBLIC was founded in 1988 by the Public Access Collective, a charitable non-profit organization. Its evolving membership has been curating and producing projects and urban interventions, speaker series and artist talks for over 30 years. In 2018, the Collective was reorganized into the incorporated charity, Public Access, under which the journal’s direction is managed by the Public Editorial Collective, and projects by Public Projects.
PUBLIC is an interdisciplinary journal with a core focus on visual art. It strives to be an accessible, smart and beautiful journal about art with the timeliness and visual interest of a magazine, but the longevity of a book. PUBLIC maintains an enduring and esteemed profile in the periodicals market with its demonstrated commitment to publishing works, both written and visual, that are innovative and challenging, forward-thinking and critical, and engage both internationally and locally inflected perspectives.
