About C Magazine

C Magazine is a Toronto-based contemporary art and criticism periodical devoted to providing a forum for significant ideas in visual art and culture. Each quarterly issue explores a new theme through original art writing, criticism and artists' projects.

With an emphasis on leading publication design, C is printed in full colour on FSC certified paper and perfect bound, with a satin matte cover.

Our readers are visual arts professionals and those with a keen interest in the forms, content and meaning of contemporary art - including artists, curators, art writers and critics, dealers, educators, students, consultants and art collectors.

C Magazine is published quarterly by C The Visual Arts Foundation, a non-profit charitable organization established to present ideas, advance education and document contemporary visual art and artist culture.
