Mission Statement

New Art Publications, Inc. aka BOMB’s mandate is to give voice to those who create our culture. BOMB was launched in 1981 because its founders—NYC artists and writers—saw a disparity between the way artists talked about their work among themselves and the way it was described by critics. BOMB has since been delivering the artist’s voice by publishing in-depth interviews between artists about the creative process. What began 32 years ago as a quarterly publication is now transforming into a multimedia network dedicated to the creation, preservation, and dissemination of artist-generated content. BOMB now reaches 1.5 million readers, in print and online. And with funding from the Mellon Foundation, BOMB is synthesizing all of its content—over 5,000 primary cultural documents—into a searchable, relational, and free online library. With additional funding from the NEA, Cary Brown-Epstein, and Dorothy Lichtenstein, BOMB is concurrently redesigning its website in order to present this wealth of material. Upon completion, the site will serve as a fully integrated and ongoing history of artistic dialogue in NYC since 1981, that will be continually replenished with content from BOMB’s ongoing programs: · In BOMB Magazine, our print quarterly and flagship, signature, in-depth interviews transform lively, raw conversation into stimulating, historical exchanges. These interviews are contextualized by artists’ essays, new literature, and art portfolios. · On BOMBlog, a digital hub edited by NYC emerging artists and writers, arts practitioners discuss their work with each other and with their mentors, publishing daily content that bridges disciplines and new media forms. · For BOMB’s Oral Histories project, in association with the Archives of American Art, the life-stories of seminal African-American artists are documented and preserved. · In The New Media & Arts Fellowship, a partnership with 651 ARTS, Brooklyn high-school students are guided by BOMB staff as they interview artists and publish a multimedia blog.

Ms. Betsy Sussler

Profile:

Betsy Sussler co-founded BOMB Magazine in 1981 with a mandate to publish the artist’s voice—in-depth conversations between artists about the creative process. 32 years later, under her stewardship, BOMB has grown from a quarterly journal with a readership of 3,000 to a multi-platform network boasting a virtual library of over 5,000 primary source documents and an annual readership of one and a half million. BOMB has received two NEA Heritage and Preservation grants and its material archives were acquired by and are now a part of Columbia University’s Rare Book and Manuscript Collection. Sussler is a 1991 NYFA Fellow in playwriting. She has conducted interviews with some of the most prominent artists and writers of the late 20th century including: Cindy Sherman, Carroll Dunham, Gary Indiana, Whit Stillman, James Nares, Keith Sonnier, and Sarah Charlesworth, and edited four anthologies of BOMB: BOMB Interviews (City Lights, 1992), Speak Art!

?

GuideStar worked with BoardSource, the national leader in nonprofit board leadership and governance, to create this section, which enables organizations and donors to transparently share information about essential board leadership practices.

Board Orientation & Education ?
Why does this matter? Without clarity around their responsibilities and expectations, board members are not positioned to succeed. They may find themselves challenged to fulfill their governance responsibilities or frustrated by the expectations that the organization has set for them. BoardSource recommends that every new board member participate in a formal orientation process, and that all board members sign a pledge or agreement committing to their board service and to all of the responsibilities and expectations that come with service. Ideally, board members also should participate in a formal governance training program prior to serving on a board.

Does the board conduct a formal orientation for new board members and require all board members to sign a written agreement regarding their roles, responsibilities, and expectations?
Response Not Provided
CEO Oversight ?
Why does this matter? Oversight and management of the chief executive is one of the board’s most important legal responsibilities. The CEO or executive director is the board's single employee, and - just like any other employer/employee relationship - regular and written assessment is critical to ensuring that the chief executive and board are communicating openly about goals and performance. BoardSource recommends that boards conduct formal, written reviews of their chief executives on an annual basis, which should include an in-person discussion with the chief executive and distribution of the written evaluation to the full board.

Has the board conducted a formal, written assessment of the chief executive within the past year?
Response Not Provided
Ethics & Transparency ?
Why does this matter? A commitment to handling conflicts of interests is essential to creating an organizational culture of transparency. Boards should create and follow a policy for identifying and handling conflicts of interest, whether real or perceived. BoardSource recommends that organizations review the conflict-of-interest statement and require signed disclosures from all board members and senior staff on an annual basis.

Have the board and senior staff reviewed the conflict-of-interest policy and completed and signed disclosure statements within the past year?
Response Not Provided
Board Composition ?
Why does this matter? The best boards are composed of individuals who bring a variety of skills, perspectives, backgrounds, and resources to tackle the complex and strategic challenges confronting their organizations. BoardSource recommends that boards commit to diversity and inclusion by establishing written policies and practices, which include strategic and intentional recruitment of diverse board members, continual commitment to inclusivity, and equal access to board leadership opportunities.

Does the board ensure an inclusive board member recruitment process that results in diversity of thought and leadership?
Response Not Provided
Board Performance ?
Why does this matter? Boards need to regularly assess their own performance. Doing so ensures that they are being intentional about how they govern their organization, which is a critical component of effective board leadership. BoardSource recommends that a board conduct a self-assessment of its performance a minimum of once every three years to ensure that it is staying on track with its roles and responsibilities.

Has the board conducted a formal, written self-assessment of its performance within the past three years?

Program Description:

The Oral Histories Project is a collection of in-depth interviews with New York City's African-American visual artists that documents and preserves their life stories. These conversations between legendary, iconic, or underrepresented visual artists delve into personal experience, including discussions on art, culture, and history that are both individually and collectively significant. Since launching the Oral Histories Project in 2012, BOMB has produced four texts, ranging from 80 to 104 pages: Edward Clark by Jack Whitten; William T. Williams by Patricia Spears Jones; Gerald Jackson by Stanley Whitney, and Martin Puryear by Irving Sandler (in process). In 2013-2014, BOMB will produce histories with painter and photographer Adger Cowans by Carrie Mae Weems; photographer and activist Jeanne Moutoussamy-Ashe by Kalia Brooks; photographer and filmmaker Lorna Simpson; and sculptor Melvin Edwards (interviewers TBD). The edited manuscripts, complete with images and short videos, will be available to the public for free in 2014 on BOMBsite.com and on our distribution partner, the Archives of American Art's website, which together draw three million annual visitors. Oral histories are part documentation, part preservation, and also part interpretation of a time and place. BOMB offers a unique ability to foreground these conversations within the context of a larger one: the historical artists' conversations in its digital archive of over 5,000 primary cultural documents. Having perfected the art of producing spontaneous yet intellectually stimulating dialogue since 1981, BOMB has the expertise to generate oral histories representative of the singularity of the artist's vision and his/her impact on NYC's cultural history.

Program Description:

BOMBlog (bombsite.com/blog) is a digital hub where NYC artists of all disciplines discuss their work among each other and with their mentors. Its contributors experiment with models for arts writing and publish content that bridges disciplines and new-media forms. Highlights include Legacy Russell's series of interviews with artists conducted over Twitter and Patrick Dacey's extended two-part conversation with his former professor and writer George Saunders. BOMBlog is also an actual hub: In BOMB's editorial offices, blog editors—emerging artists based in NYC—meet, practice, and develop their editorial skills, seeking out visual artists, filmmakers, writers, performers and musicians whose work is underrepresented in the mainstream media. BOMBlog's purpose is to provide a professional and supportive environment in which emerging artists and writers can build community, explore the creative process with their peers and mentors, and develop new practices in online publishing. BOMBlog draws 200,000 annual readers. The blog publishes one major feature Monday-Friday, totaling 260 articles per year and involving approximately 450, both new and returning, contributors annually. A daily post could include a conversation between a visual artist and her peer such as Carmen Winant's interview with Moyra Davey; a podcast of a poetry reading with writers like Dorothea Lasky or CAConrad, or an in-depth interview with an emerging choreographer like Lauren Bakst's conversation with Jen Rosenblit accompanied by videotaped rehearsal footage. 80% of BOMBlog's contributors are emerging artists living in NYC. With BOMBlog as their platform, these young artists and writers investigate the creative process using the magazine's editorial methodology, discover new ways to fulfill and enhance BOMB's original mandate of publishing dialogues between artists.

Program Description:

BOMB Magazine is an arts and culture quarterly that publishes in-depth interviews between artists about the creative process and contextualizes them with artists’ essays, new fiction and poetry, and art portfolios. • BOMB’s signature in-depth interviews transform raw conversations between artists into historical exchanges that reveal their ideas, concerns, and creative processes, like Alix Pearlstein's profound description of her video-making process with fellow artist John Pilson, or Stanley Whitney's story of his early struggles as an African-American artist in NYC with painter David Reed. • For BOMB's essays—the Editor's Choice reviews and the Artists on Artists—artists are encouraged to write creatively and idiosyncratically on exhibitions, films, books, albums, performances, or a fellow artist's work. Examples include John O'Connor's concrete poetry, an ode to Katie Bell's work, or the back and forth critical disagreement between Justin Lieberman and Nic Guagnini. • First Proof is BOMB’s literary supplement publishing 48 pages of experimental fiction and poetry, world literature in translation, art portfolios, and two literary interviews. BOMB publishes 32 interviews, 50-60 essays, 16 art portfolios, and 32 literary texts annually, involving 168 artists. This content provides the public with unique insights into the creative processes of contemporary artists. BOMB is distributed to 60,000 readers and its content is available online at BOMBsite.com one month after publication. By 2014, all of BOMB's ongoing and historical content will be online as a free, virtual library. BOMB’s online counterpart, BOMBsite, draws 1.5 million annual readers.
