zingmagazine is a reverent contemporary art magazine founded in 1995 by artist Devon Dikeou. zing began as a quarterly, black-and-white magazine. Its first issue contained projects by Kenny Schachter, Gordon Tapper, Ed Web, Gregory Volk, Donald Fergusson, Michael Corris, Amy Sillman, and Susan Robinson, and ran about 100 pages.
zing is now printed in color and has reached about 400 pages. Its curated projects have featured a variety of artistic mediums, including illustration, architecture, fashion, graphic design, music, painting, drawing, fiction, poetry, and critical reviews. zing adheres to an irregular printing schedule, from less than once a year to as often as three times per year. In issue 20, an ad for the magazine declared "zingmagazine: We come out when we come out."
