Maake Magazine is an independent, artist-run, limited edition print publication and online resource showcasing the work of emerging artists. Our goal is to exhibit innovative and experimental contemporary artwork and foster conversation and community. We hope to support the expansion and reinvention of traditional disciplines of art and making, where media and methods converge and cross boundaries to create unique combinations. We explore the place where fiber, textiles, sculpture, ceramics, painting, digital, design and more come together to create exciting and groundbreaking work. We also actively promote the work of featured artists via social media, printed issues, and on the blog.

Our mission is to support emerging artists, writers, and curators through our print publication, exhibitions, and online interviews. Follow us on social media @maakemag to stay up-to-date on current issues, opportunities and events. Check out the many full-length interviews with featured artists online under each issue. We feature artists working in all media. 

Here are just a few of the projects we brought to life since we started in 2013:

  • Interviewed over 100 artists in full-length interviews available on the website
  • Curated 3 exhibitions across the United States in collaboration with 3 different galleries
  • Published 5 print issues (Issue 6 is on the way!)
  • Been stocked in 11 retail locations around the world
  • Worked with 8 guest writers on essays and interviews
  • Featured 5 artist-run projects
