Tarantula: Authors and Art debuted as a digital magazine in 2021, featuring in-depth coverage of one artist per month and prompting its in-house authors to write a narrative in response to the work, turning the magazine into a collaborative artwork in its own right. Since its online launch, the magazine has curated shows with interviewed artists at art fairs, apartment exhibits in addition to releasing a printed edition.
