Founded in 2012, Decoy Magazine is a publication project that engages artists and writers, both locally and abroad. Much of our activity takes place in Vancouver, BC, on the unceded territory of the Coast Salish Peoples, including the territories of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations. With an emphasis on social and political contexts and the use of publishing as a curatorial platform, our mission is to foster a thoughtful dialogue among arts and culture through the production of artist portfolios, essays, interviews, and digital exhibitions. The name Decoy is inspired by our desire to bring attention to alternative and unexpected frameworks for the distribution and critical engagement of contemporary art practices.
