BOMB Magazine Relaunches Website Providing FREE Access to The Quarterly Print Magazine, a Daily Online Publication, their Digital Archive, and their Oral History Project

NEW YORK, March 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- BOMB launches its newly restructured and redesigned website—a platform for the ongoing creation of artist-to-artist dialogue and a portal into BOMB's archives. Thanks to funding from A.W. Mellon Foundation, over the past two years, BOMB has digitized its previously published content—over 6,000 articles involving more than 7,000 artists. With additional funding from the National Endowment for the Arts, the Fiddlehead Fund, BOMB's Board of Trustees, and Dorothy Lichtenstein, BOMB redesigned its website to highlight the conversations between artists. The dynamic web platform will provide BOMB's growing online audience, now in the millions, with unprecedented and FREE access to its ever-expanding cultural dialogue. And by optimizing the site for mobile devices, BOMB will reach and an even broader audience.

"BOMB online displays everything we've published over 33 years and everything we are today: A place where artists of all generations and disciplines come together in dialogue," says Betsy Sussler, BOMB's Founder & Editor in Chief. "BOMB has always been a place for inspiration and reflection, now we're tapping the Internet's potential to connect ideas across time. And we're bringing these conversations—ideas about art by the people who make the art—to readers around the world."

BOMB Quarterly, a journal distributed around the world and made up of in-depth interviews between visual artists, writers, performers, directors, musicians, architects, and more, alongside artists' essays and new literature, will now be available online. Users will be able to browse all of BOMB's previously published and current issues.

BOMB Daily, the next generation's online version of BOMB, will triple BOMB's publishing capacity. BOMB Daily's content is continuously integrated with archived content, revealing an exponentially expanding network of connections between artists of all generations.

BOMB also launches its Oral History Project, which will document the life stories of New York City's African-American visual artists.

BOMB's Archive, which now has a searchable catalogue, contains all of BOMB's previously published content for the past 33 years and counting. Indexing will be complete by the end of 2014, by which point all of BOMB's archived and ongoing content will be navigable and integrated into the site. Artists highlighted on the site include:

Marina Abramovic, Cesar Aira, Francis Alys, Cecily Brown, David Cronenberg, Junot Diaz, Deborah Eisenberg, Bill Frisell, Heidi Julavits, Jonathan Lethem, Sol LeWitt, Steven Millhauser, Gabriel Orozco, Francine Prose, W.G. Sebald, Richard Serra, Santiago Sierra, Sufjan Stevens, Bela Tarr, Mckalene Thomas, Colm Toibin.

Tom Griffiths, co-owner – along with Jessica Green – of Everything Studio, designed the site.

BOMB's mission is to deliver the artist's voice. Launched in 1981, BOMB was named for Wyndham Lewis's Blast, the first artists' journal of the 20th century. Its founders—New York City based artists and writers—started BOMB because they saw a disparity between the way artists talked about their work among themselves and the way critics described it. As a result, BOMB has been publishing conversations between artists about their creative process for the past 33 years. Today, BOMB is a multi-media publishing house that creates, disseminates, and preserves artist-generated content.
