Pastelegram is an online and print publication concerned with images and their sources. It is dedicated to contemporary artists, art historians and critics as well as the ideas, images and texts that inform their projects, some historical and others less so. As such, Pastelegram provides an international platform for the examination of artistic and historical practice. Pastelegram lives in two distinct forms: a biannual print issue and an online site. The print issue features an editorial collaboration with an artist or art historian that includes original works made for the magazine, visual essays, an interview with the issue’s collaborator and a collection of outside texts and images selected by the collaborator and Pastelegram’s editors. Our online version offers supplementary materials to the print issue such as weekly reviews and monthly features offering close examinations of objects and images. Pastelegram is currently sponsored by Big Medium, a non-profit 501(c)(3) arts organization based in Austin, Texas, whose mission is to support the visual arts and artists in Texas.


This project is funded and supported in part by the City of Austin through the Economic Growth & Redevelopment Services Office/Cultural Arts Division believing an investment in the Arts is an investment in Austin’s future. Visit Austin at
