History and profile[edit]

Trouble was started in Newstead, Australia, in 2004. The first issue featured a cover image of The Young Family (2002-3) by Patricia Piccinini, which had been recently acquired by the Bendigo Art Gallery. The first magazine consisted of 16 black and white pages, and the 1,000 copies that were printed soon disappeared from around 50 chosen outlets around Bendigo and Castlemaine in central Victoria. In 2011 a CAB audit[1] of the magazine’s circulation confirmed a figure of 20,000 free copies of Trouble being distributed nationally in Australia each month. Trouble magazine is edited and designed by Steve Proposch, and continues to publish contemporary material of particular interest to artists, performers and arts consumers.

In August 2013 Trouble developed an IOS app.[2]
