Studio is an online publication that describes contemporary art with a voice that is sincere, critical, and intimate. With an emphasis on material production, research, and the environments of making, Studio is a view into the creative processes of artists. The texts function as a means of research for the writer: a core part of Studio’s mandate is a dedication to providing art writing by artists. Each will be written by someone with their own background in making, who can provide the unique commentary of one artists’ insight into another's work.

In addition, Studio is not tied to any one geographical location, medium, or institution— rather, Studio surrounds people. The publication will follow its writers to whichever studios, exhibitions, or places they visit.
