FORGE. Art Magazine

Your art: printed, published, and distributed for the world to see.

Here’s a bonus video we made as a part of our interview with Richard Kern, where he gives us a tour of his apartment and shows off a few of the books and artists that inspire him. This video also includes music by Horrible Houses.

During our trip to New York this past spring for the Brooklyn Zine Fest, we were  lucky enough to visit Richard Kern at his home and studio in Manhattan! Richard talked about his work over the past few decades from directing videos for Sonic Youth to filming the Vice series Shot By Kern and publishing his book of the same title.

FORGE. Has Officially moved to New York!
This week we finally packed up our things, and moved downstate to New York City. We’re currently living in Manhattan now, and are going to school in the fall. FORGE. is incredibly excited about what is to come in the next few months, and to see how we can grow and improve the magazine as a whole.
Because of the move, and everything involved in settling in the city, things will be slow for the next few weeks. Don’t worry, we’re still cranking away on Issue 5, and we’re really looking forward to publishing so many great submissions!
Thanks again for all of the patients and support! Let us know if you’re in the city and interested in connecting with the magazine!

Along with meeting Kendra Yee this weekend, we also had the pleasure of visiting Michael DeForge at his apartment in Toronto! Michael talked about his up coming book tour with Simon Hanselmann and Patrick Kyle, how he combats writer’s block, and his experience working on Adventure Time from several thousand miles away.
The interview will be released as text in Issue 5 of FORGE. (coming out in September) and as a video in the next couple of months.

This weekend FORGE. took a trip up to Toronto to film a couple of interviews for this fall’s Issue 5. On Sunday we met up with Rookie staff illustrator, Kendra Yee, at her home studio, and discussed her upcoming show at The Black Cat, the local art scene, and her experience working for Rookie.

ISSUU - Staff Favorites by Issuu Staff

Last week the Issuu staff were kind enough to add our 4th issue to their Staff Favorites Stack! This is a really big deal to us because essentially this means a massive amount of people have now been able to find the magazine for the first time, and read the new issue. With in just a week about 200,000 people have discovered and read the new issue!

Anonymous asked:
Are you printing the magazine?

This a very great question, that we’re still somewhat on the fence about. At the moment it is very unclear what were going to do about printing current and future issues, and we hope to have more information about it some time next year. But for now I can offer you the following information:

First off, because of the over all cost of printing the magazine and the cost of shipping copies individually, it’s incredibly hard for us to print the magazine. It’s also very difficult for to get together a large sum of money to pay for printing an entire run of a single issue without knowing how many copies we will actually sell and without pre-orders. FORGE. is also almost entirely run by two people, which makes it very hard for us to manage shipping each copy as efficiently as we would like to.
FORGE. will be relocating to New York City this August (which we are quite excited about) and that is going to greatly impact the way the magazine operates in print. For one, if we decide to print more issues, we’re going to have to find a new printer and switch from the local one we have been using in the past. On the other hand, this also means we may have the opportunity to find more stores that would be willing to sell the magazine, which would encourage us to print more issues!
Over the course of the next few months, as we work on our 5th issue and get ready to move, we plan on setting up a fully functional online store where you can order physical issues (that we’ve already printed) and other FORGE. merch!

Anonymous asked:
So what are the themes coming up?

The theme for the next issue will be TRANSITION, and we’re currently accepting submissions for it. We generally don’t determine or announce the theme for new issues until the preceding issue is out.

-Matthew

The theme for Issue 5 has been announced!
We’ve decided that the theme for Issue 5 will be TRANSITION. Submissions for Issue 5 will be accepted from today until August 1st. Everyone has two months to create and submit photographs, illustrations, etc… Make sure your submission relates to the theme, and follows the guidelines on our submission page. Issue 5 will be released in the first week of September, the same day submitting to Issue 6 will begin.
If you’ve already sent us work, feel free to resend it, or send in work that you feel more closely relates to the theme. Remember, we’d prefer if the work was produced specifically for the issue, but if you do have older work that you feel relates to TRANSITION it will still be considered.
You can also go read Issue 4: SENTIMENTAL online now!
GOOD LUCK!

We just finished editing Issue 4! Much like our last issue, we somehow ended up with an enormous 100 page magazine. Finishing this issue was quite an endeavor due to how busy we’ve been since the Brooklyn Zine Fest and with school ending for the year, but because of all of the amazing artists who contributed to this issue we were super persistent with getting it done as soon as possible. Despite the slight delay, we’re really happy with how it all turned out, and we really enjoyed doing all of the interviews and collecting all of the submissions for it. We hope that you can enjoy this issue as much as we have enjoyed making it!

Issue 4: SENTIMENTAL includes submissions by Emanuel Couloumy, Kimberly Salt, Joëlle de Vries, Jason Lambidis,  Alice Antoinette Lena Klyukina, Justine Kistler, Hana Haley, Anna Urik, Eddie Perrote, Samantha Blumenfeld, Shreya Gupta, Jess & Beyon, Andriana Nikolaidou, and Emilie Gleason. Issue 4 also includes interviews with Ryan McCardle, Grant Singer, Richard Kern, and Ray Masaki!
