Printed Project is a journal published by the Sculptors' Society of Ireland. Printed Project is an ongoing collaboration amongst artists, critics and curators, writers and readers devoted to making sense of contemporary art and culture.

Printed Project is published twice a year and is edited on a rotating basis by invited curatorial editors. It gathers and presents thought and opinion on issues and arguments that enliven dialogue and debate on art and the wider culture of our present day.

With Printed Project the Sculptors' Society of Ireland sets out to meet the need felt within an expanding art industry for a not-for-entertainment art publication. Simple and modest in design and production the journal brings the best of comprehensive thought to bear on present art practices and on the shared consequences artists and audiences face as our culture backs into the future.
