Hoodie Mag is a professional youth arts publishing project. Participating artists engage in a range of creative practices that explore visual, digital, public, performative and activist art mediums in refreshing and sophisticated ways. At Hoodie Mag we believe young artists should be viewed through an aesthetic lens, rather than a biographical one. The artists presented in this mag are naturally talented, despite their emerging experience and expertise, and deserve creative and critical attention - just like any artist. Hoodie Mag is an Australian production, but we work internationally. We connect and engage with and present young artists from all over the world.
The title of this mag sets up an intentional contradiction and reflects the publications rebellious nature. The hoodie (slang for hooded sweatshirt) is often worn by and associated with young people. This association is not always a positive one. Hoodie Mag presents a group of young artists who are challenging cultural and art world stereotypes.
Hoodie Mag has also begun working with young web, game and sound designers and young digital marketing specialists to build and present innovative print and digital communications and experiences. We are ramping-up our online MO, creating a more engaging social media presence and more interactive/game-like website experiences. We are getting inventive with our digital marketing strategies, looking at new ways to engage our audience and playing around with coding and website customisation. So stay tuned... Hoodie Mag wants to MAKE and BREAK the rules when it comes to digital publishing and the promotion of young artists! We are currently testing out our new printed MapMag presentation idea - let us know if you'd like us to send you a copy.
Young artists wanting to engage with us at Hoodie Mag or those wanting to get their work published should get in touch. We’re really keen to meet and promote more young artists.
