NOIA - the Italian word for boredom - is an independent magazine born from a creative reaction to lockdown and isolation. Rooted in collaborations between artists, designers, photographers, writers, and other creatives, NOIA sources a diverse range of expressions and perspectives to create visual responses towards contemporary critical issues.
NOIA is a platform for experimentation and a laboratory to create dynamic forms of expression, presenting alternative solutions to challenge current establishments of thought. We believe that collaboration between creatives is a powerful tool to ignite discussion and counterbalance dominant, traditional narratives.
NOIA is a magazine born in 2021, during lockdowns across the world. As a reaction to that moment in which we were all stuck, NOIA uses boredom as fuel for fostering collaborations and creating novelty.
The first issue focuses on the idea of Radical Actions and creates a discourse around what is the act we, as a society and as individuals need to perform in order to challenge the status quo and create a real change.
The magazine is composed of 2 parts, one is a curated series of articles, interviews, and essays, and the other is a collection of diptychs created from the combination of different artworks from different artists.
