At the forefront of art criticism and theory, October focuses critical attention on the contemporary arts—film, painting, music, media, photography, performance, sculpture, and literature—and their various contexts of interpretation.

Examining relationships between the arts and their critical and social contexts, October addresses a broad range of readers. Original, innovative, and provocative, each issue presents the best, most current texts by and about today’s artistic, intellectual, and critical vanguard.
