SFAQ (San Francisco Art Quarterly) was founded in March 2010. The first few issues were half editorial content and half event listings for art exhibitions and events around the Bay Area. After the first year our content expanded to national coverage and then international coverage. The format also changed from an 8 x 10 inch stapled magazine, to a larger (12 x 14 inch) magazine, and finally to our current format, a traditional broadsheet of 11 x 21 inches.
NYAQ (New York Art Quarterly) launched in September 2015. After covering a ton of New York content in SFAQ, we decided that it made sense to make a separate magazine with a focus on New York.
LXAQ (Los Angeles Art Quarterly) launched in September 2016. Again after shifting focus from San Francisco to Los Angeles in SFAQ, we decided that it made sense to make a separate magazine with a focus on Los Angeles.
AQ (Art Quarterly) was focused on political, social, and technological content. We published five issues of AQ between 2015-2016. Cover features included Angela Davis, Noam Chomsky, Mumia Abu Jamal, Tim Wise, and Huey Newton. Beginning in the fall of 2016, content previously in AQ is spread out across NYAQ, LXAQ, and SFAQ.
DFAQ (Mexico City Art Quarterly) was a bilingual publication launched in November 2014, with only one issue produced to date—focus on Mexico City will resume through LXAQ, and there are plans in the works to produce another issue of DFAQ. Visit dfaq.mx for more info.
