zingmagazine is a reverent contemporary art magazine founded in 1995 by artist Devon Dikeou. zing began as a quarterly, black and white magazine. Its first issue contained projects by Kenny Schachter, Gordon Tapper, Ed Web, Gregory Volk, Donald Fergusson, Michael Corris, Amy Sillman, and Susan Robinson, and ran about 100 pages.
zing is now printed in color and has reached about 400 pages. Its curated projects have featured a variety of artistic mediums including illustration, architecture, fashion, graphic design, music, painting, drawing, fiction, poetry, and critical reviews. zing adheres to an irregular printing schedule, from less than once a year to as often as three times per year. In issue 20, an ad for the magazine declared "zingmagazine: We come out when we come out."
zing has always offered redactional freedom: artists and curators are invited to submit what they choose with zing publishing the project as is. Contributors have appreciated the opportunity to create projects that they might not otherwise have the chance to create.
Based in Manhattan's SoHo, the company also publishes books, CDs, posters, and other special projects determined only by the limits of its budget and its curators' imaginations.
Artists previously featured in zingmagazine include Kenneth Goldsmith, Rainer Ganahl, Spencer Finch, Zac Posen, Robert Antoni, the Royal Art Lodge and, solo, Marcel Dzama
zingmagazine is affiliated with the Dikeou collection in Denver, a non-profit contemporary art collection started by Devon Dikeou and her brother Pany.
