The latest issue of Art Journal, mailed in February, is dedicated to manifestations of print, from the cultural roles of published artifacts in the nineteenth and twenty-first centuries (by Michael Leja and the editors of the collective Triple Canopy respectively) to artist’s projects by Richard Tuttle and Matthew Brannon that exploit the physical conditions of the printed journal itself.

The final Art Journal Centennial essay by Sarah Suzuki surveys up-to-the-moment practices in printmaking, while a piece by Harper Montgomery focuses on a Mexico City street exhibition of prints in 1929 as an instance of the political dimensions of distributing art prints. Finally, an essay by Bruce Hainley, “Store as Cunt,” explores the subversive 1960s work of the artist Sturtevant.

The Triple Canopy essay, “The Binder and the Server,” which received the 2012 Art Journal Award at the CAA Annual Conference last month, and Seth McCormick’s review of Hiroko Ikegami’s book The Great Migrator: Robert Rauschenberg and the Global Rise of American Art are featured as free content on the journal’s website.
