Barbed Magazine is a contemporary art magazine in Detroit. Barbed features studio visits, mini show reviews, and artists’ works who live in the region. Founded in September 2014, Barbed promotes artists from the LGTBQ, Black, Latino, immigrant and other minority communities.

Barbed is a limited edition publication, printed twice annually; in the spring and winter. Available for purchase locally in Detroit, at MOCAD (Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit,) in San Francisco at Adobe Books. And Barbed is now available in McNally Jackson Books, in Manhathan, New York. Also, Barbed is accessible for viewing at the University of Michigan Library, and at the Cranbrook Academy of Art Library.  

Barbed is a proud member of the W.A.G.E. Coalition, a growing group of artists, art workers, and arts organizations that share Barbed's goal of building a sustainable business model in which artists are paid for their work. W.A.G.E. (Working Artists and the Greater Economy) is a New York-based activist organization focused on regulating the payment of artist fees by nonprofit art institutions and establishing a sustainable labor relation between artists and the institutions that contract our work.
