The first issue of Art Lies was published in 1994. Originally a quarterly journal covering the Houston arts community, Art Lies soon expanded to include statewide coverage and beyond, placing Texas artists, curators, scholars and critics in dialogue with their peers across the globe.

Founded and rooted in Texas, Art Lies provides an international forum for the critical examination of artistic practice, theory and discourse on and about the contemporary arts. Art Lies achieves its mission through the publication of a printed journal, a Guest Editorial Program, website, membership events and public programming, including the Art Lies Annual Distinguished Critic Lecture Series.
