Creative Capital and the Andy Warhol Foundation, National Call for Applicants: 2018 Arts Writers Grant
Deadline: May 21st, 2018
The Arts Writers grant supports both emerging and established writers who are writing about contemporary visual art. Ranging from $15,000 to $50,000 in four categories — articles, blogs, books and short-form writing — these grants support projects addressing both general and specialized art audiences, from scholarly studies to self-published blogs. The program also supports art writing that engages criticism through interdisciplinary methods or experiments with literary styles. As long as a writer meets the eligibility and publishing requirements, they can apply.
By “contemporary visual art,” we mean visual art made since World War II. Projects on post-WWII work in adjacent fields—architecture, design, film, performance, sound, experimental music, etc.—will only be considered if they directly and significantly engage the discourses and concerns of contemporary visual art. Projects with a pre-WWII component will only be considered if the project’s main focus is contemporary.
To be eligible for this grant, an arts writer must be:
- an individual;
- applying for a project about contemporary visual art;
- an art historian, artist, critic, curator, journalist, or practitioner in an outside field who is strongly engaged with the contemporary visual arts;
- a U.S. citizen, permanent resident of the United States, or holder of an O-1 visa;
- at least twenty-five years old;
- a published author (specific publication requirements vary depending on grant category; see the project-specific eligibility requirements).
