About HOAX

HOAX is an ongoing curatorial project dedicated to giving a print, digital and IRL platform to work that exists at the intersection of art and creative writing. We’re like a hybrid of an exhibition, a publishing space, a commissioning programme, and an ever-expanding survey and archive. We give a freely-accessible public home to bold, new creative work that incorporates text.

HOAX was started in 2012 to examine the evolving use of text in the arts, and to be a positive, collaborative and emancipatory presence in an increasingly exploitative and reactionary art world. To date, we have presented original works by over 180 international artists and writers, and produced seven free-of-charge print editions, organising a physical event or exhibition to accompany each.

Now, to mark our 10th anniversary, we've relaunched with a new online platform and digital archive of over 200 works, the return of our print issues, and a fresh look. We continue to present one new online work a week, and really want to keep growing, with ambitions to expand further over the coming years to influence better practices in the arts more widely. We also want to be able to pay our artists and writers more.

In order to get there, we're asking supporters like you to subscribe to our Patreon, making a small monthly gift that will help us have a more sustainable funding model. In return you'll get each weekly work delivered straight to your inbox, plus rewards like free copies of HOAX’s new print issues, postcards and stickers, and having your name listed as a supporter on our site if you wish.

We need to bring in around £250 / $350 in donations a month to keep HOAX going, and we don't receive any other income. Every single donation goes to paying our contributors, producing our print issues, and posting them to our stockists to distribute free of charge. All other costs are covered out of pocket by the team, who work for free.

HOAX’s existence relies solely on the support of those who share our principles, are excited by creative text, and want to see independent, artist-led projects like ours grow and flourish. If you enjoy HOAX and want us to thrive, please consider supporting us. Any size donation will be very much appreciated and put to extremely good use—chiefly to paying artists and writers.

Thank you for your generosity in helping us keep growing, supporting artists and writers and providing a positive space in the arts.

Goals
$68.84 of $349 per month
When we reach £250 a month in patrons, that's when all our monthly costs will be covered, HOAX will be able to fully sustain itself and we can start growing and looking to the future. Thank you for helping us reach this goal.
