We’re looking to add a few more names to our list of potential writers for our recent endeavor: Exhibition Essays. Art historians, artists, and curators will be paired with upcoming exhibitions in an effort to extend the conversation at work in the gallery. We anticipate a lively exchange of critique between writer and artist and hope that the accompanying essay may offer a deeper interpretation for the visiting audience to consider. While there is no formal compensation for the essay, your piece will be published online here at our website, attached to email blasts about the show, and available to visitors in the gallery.
If you’re interested in writing, please email email@example.com with a short bio which includes your art interests and an attached CV. If you have a writing sample, please send it along, too. This will be a rolling application–there is no due date.
There is no format a writer must adhere to and we encourage you to be as creative as you’d like so long as you engage with the work and the artists showing in the exhibition.
