For its 150th issue, BOMB has redesigned its flagship print magazine. This design reaffirms its mandate to deliver the artist's voice, supporting the vital discourse that appears in BOMB with vivid imagery and innovative juxtapositions that encourage dialogue across the arts—from conversations between artists, writers, and performers to exciting literature. BOMB presents exchanges in their formative state: revelatory, fluid, and iconoclastic.
This issue features interviews with Bruce Pearson, Anthony Roth Costanzo, Jacolby Satterwhite, Cathy Park Hong, Christiane Jatahy, and Seth Price
, as well as fiction from Amelia Gray, Deb Olin Unferth, and Jenny Wu, and poetry from Sawako Nakayasu, Andrei Monastyrski, and Bob Holman.
BOMB Magazine is a print quarterly publishing in-depth interviews
between artists alongside artists' essays
, literature, and portfolios. The magazine has been publishing conversations between artists of all disciplines since 1981. BOMB's founders—New York City based artists and writers—created the magazine because they saw a disparity between the way artists talked about their work among themselves and the way critics described it.
Today, BOMB is a multimedia publishing house that creates, disseminates, and preserves artist-generated content from interviews to artists' essays to new literature.
