folio is an independent art publication which operates as an exhibition space on paper, presenting the work of a number of artists per issue. We are interested in presenting three-dimensional, durational or otherwise dematerialised work on the flat page, and exploring its relationship to the screen.

We work with a different guest editor each time, opening up the magazine to work from other fields such as music, design, architecture and writing.

We select artists - by open submission or invitation - whose practices respond in some way to the printed format and are interested in participating in a collaborative editorial process.

folio is co-edited by Merve Kaptan and Charlie Coffey.


We accept submissions on an ongoing basis. You can send a sample of your work to (preferably a weblink)

You can also get in touch with us at

folio seeks to operate as an exhibition space on paper, presenting the work several artists per issue. The magazine is particularly keen to offer a platform for three-dimensional, time-based and de-materialised work to be realised on the flat page. In every issue, a new guest editor works to bring influences from other disciplines including music, architecture and writing.
