Nuart Journal, Publication, 2017–present
[see also: Nuart Festival]
In September 2018, our long time collaborators Nuart Festival launched the Nuart Journal, after first testing the concept as part of the 2017 festival programme.
The Nuart Journal ties in with the series of academic symposia Nuart Plus, and is a forum for critical discourse and commentary on urban art, defined as broadly as possible to include all aspects of both independently sanctioned and unsanctioned art in public space that does not fall under the general rubric of traditional public art practice.
As a publication, Nuart Journal is continually evolving both in terms of design and content. Published in a magazine-sized format with a glossy soft cover and utilising experimental layouts structures, it aims to subvert the typical journal format, continuously referring back to Nuart’s core references, the Punk and Situationist movements.
The biannual journal is a joint venture between our long term collaborator Martyn Reed of Nuart Festival, Susan Hansen of Middlesex University, London, with its first issue out in 2018 and currently on its 4th issue.
Having shaped the Nuart Journal since its inception, we continue to be in charge of design and layout, as well as having designed the typefaces in use throughout, SB Spartan.
