For twenty-five years, X-TRA has published extraordinary writing, artists’ projects, and innovative graphic design. Through our journal, website, and public events, we have nurtured a vibrant critical discourse about contemporary art and created forums for diverse voices in Los Angeles and beyond. 

And yet, we find ourselves facing significant financial and organizational challenges. These difficulties have led the Project X Foundation for Art & Criticism, which publishes the journal and supports all of our activities, to reach the painful decision to discontinue X-TRA.

In the coming months, we will continue to publish material already in progress and provide for the future of our archive and website. We are deeply grateful to the countless readers, writers, and artists with whom we have collaborated to cultivate a deeper understanding of contemporary art.

X-TRA is published by Project X Foundation for Art & Criticism, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation, which was founded in 2002.
