Writers-in-Residence

In the fall of 2014, the Art21 Magazine joined forces with CUE Art Foundation to create a joint fellowship for emerging writers. Selected writers are paired with a mentor, developing their writing under the tutelage of an established art critic appointed by the International Association of Art Critics USA Mentoring Committee.

The Writer-in-Residence shares an in-depth look at an exhibition currently on view at the CUE Art Foundation, while occasionally contributing additional articles related to the issue’s theme. Together, the Writer-in-Residence and the guest editor make each of our issues an extensive, collaborative investigation into the ways the given theme is integrated and applied in contemporary art.
