Leonardo was founded in 1968 in Paris by kinetic artist and astronautical pioneer Frank Malina who saw the need for a journal to serve as an international channel of communication among artists, with emphasis on the writings of artists who use science and developing technologies in their work. Published by The MIT Press and led by executive editor Roger Malina, Leonardo has become the leading international peer-reviewed journal on the use of contemporary science and technology in the arts and music and, increasingly, the application and influence of the arts and humanities on science and technology.

In February 2021 a special issue of the magazine will be published, which is being prepared in cooperation with the international festival of media art CYFEST. 

As the concept of CYFEST-13, this issue will have the theme “Cosmos and Chaos” and will consist from the articles and featuring materials from artists, scientists, thinkers, curators, art historians whose practice is attached with innovative art, scientific research, the representation of the cosmos in the culture and modern society. 

Leonardo articles are indexed on and in 2020 ranked third among Visual Arts titles on Google Scholar. See a full list of services that abstract and index Leonardo on The MIT Press website.
