[BKARTS] Artists Writers Grant Program

Dear Friends

We have had conversations on the list before about the place of book art within the larger context of the art world and communicating that to the world. I came across this information about the Arts Writers Grant Program, a pilot program of Creative Capital/Andy Warhol Foundation and thought it might be of interest.

The Creative Capital | Andy Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Grant is a three-year pilot program designed to support writers whose work addresses contemporary visual art, through project-based grants issued directly to individual authors. The first program of its type, it was founded in recognition of both the financially precarious situation of arts writers and their indispensable contribution to a vital artistic culture. Through awards for books, articles, and work in new and alternative media, The Creative Capital | Andy Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Grant aims to honor and encourage:
• Writing about art that is rigorous, passionate, eloquent, and precise

• Writing about art in which a keen engagement with the present is infused with an appreciation of the historical

• Writing about art that is neither afraid to take a stand, nor content to deliver authoritative pronouncements, but seeks rather to pose questions and generate new possibilities for thinking, seeing, and making

• Writing about art that is sensitive to both the importance and difficulty of situating aesthetic objects within their broader social and political contexts

• Writing about art that does not dilute or sidestep complex ideas but renders accessible their meaning and value

• Writing about art that challenges creatively the limits of existing conventions, without valorizing novelty as an end in itself
