New Observations is an independent, non-profit contemporary arts and culture journal that is written edited and published by the arts community in an expanded process, as a work of collaborative art. 

Dedicated to bringing artists' voices to the public forum through an innovative guest edited magazine published from 1981-2001, publication resumed in 2013 with issue 129 and in 2014 with issue 130. With issue 131 in 2018 an additional focus on activism and current issues impacting the world stage became a focus. Its editorial pages have presented an extraordinary range of viewpoints and ideas reflecting the diversity within the arts, literature and pressing global needs. 

Individuals speak for themselves from the inside out on in-depth thematic topics in each issue.  

New Observations Magazine has featured artists working inside of visual art, poetry, essays, fiction and project based works and is a resource for the community at large, including the general public.

The journal was founded in the early 1980′s, covering New York’s provocative art scenes at the time, expanding its horizons nation wide and internationally.

According to our founder, Lucio Pozzi, “Every group of friends is unknowingly representing a complex universe of thought and it is sufficient to have its members put on the page something, anything, for a whole world to be revealed.” We intend to maintain this maxim, bringing you, while renewing each time in our pages, these platforms of complex universes of thought for thinking and living art today. We believe that you will engage with this genuine and generous enterprise, and that with every “new observation,” every new emerging thought, every new sensible field, we propose a new horizon line to be crossed together.


Challenges and Rewards
