Yiara Magazine is a student-run, undergraduate feminist art publication. Based in Montreal, Yiara publishes an annual print issue of curated student writing and artwork, organizes a variety of workshops, discussions and lectures, and hosts an end-of-year vernissage and magazine launch.

Yiara’s online platform brings together a larger artistic and scholarly community by publishing a variety of essays, artworks, reviews and interviews which contribute to the ongoing dialogue of issues raised by intersectional feminism.

By encouraging feminist dialogue within the field of art, we hope to raise critical questions on the art historical canon, study feminist representation, pay tribute to women and figures of the past, explore ideas of gender, and the self and give voice to students concerned with these themes in their work and practice.

Yiara Magazine was founded by Raissa Paes in 2012.
