November is an educational publishing and programming endeavor whose mission is to enrich public discourse. With intimacy and rigor, November provides and encourages profound, diverse, critical responses to contemporary art and culture.

November began as a project of ten interviews published online from July to November 2020 and was co-founded by Emmanuel Olunkwa and Lauren O’Neill-Butler, with Dawn Chan, Aria Dean, and Alec Mapes-Frances. Special thanks to Yihsuan Chiu for assistance.

In summer 2021, November became a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization and a New York State registered charity. Simultaneously, we published our first volume on L’informe. We are currently working toward becoming a biannual publication.
