Pipeline is an independent, internationally growing art magazine based in Hong Kong.
The publication serves as a brainstorming platform for artists, art researchers, curators and art lovers, with an open mind and room for the underrated and the non-established, always committed to serious art making but not in an academic way. The magazine’s name comes from its effort to bridge artists from East and West, and to connect the different types of curatorial thinking and aesthetic appreciation across the globe, as well as the commercial (adopted with probity) with the noncommercial: everything that makes up the reality of today’s art world.
Some issues offer a stage for artists and experimental initiatives (current March/April issue) while others wonder about the relevance of national representations (upcoming May/June issue). All issues aim at linking different contemporary art practices internationally, while being based in Asia. Pipeline is published six times a year by independent publishing house Double Pipe Publishers (other titles include the Hong Kong Gallery Guide, with a new illustrated edition this May).
