Art Monthly Australasia

Art Monthly Australasia (AMA) is a flagship visual arts publication for the region, providing a critical platform for its artists. Published since 1987 under six full-time editors (Peter Townsend, Peter Timms, Philippa Kelly, Deborah Clark, Maurice O’Riordan and, from 2014, Michael Fitzgerald), it is Australasia’s only visual arts magazine placing visual arts in a contemporary, historical and Asia-Pacific context.

Based at the Australian National University since 1992, AMA is a non-profit charitable organisation whose income is derived from sales of the magazine, advertising, sponsorship and government funding. Its Board comprises leaders in their fields of visual arts scholarship, practice and curating, along with business and finance.Since 2015, AMA has also fostered critical discourse across the Asia-Pacific region with a new International Council, which, along with increased participation at international art fairs and biennales, is helping to provide a meaningful new context for its visual artists. Nimble and responsive to the changing landscape of arts publishing, AMA went quarterly in print in 2020 and more dynamic online.
