Open call for young art writers: Art & Education Field Notes

With the academic year drawing to a close and two of the world’s preeminent exhibitions of contemporary art beckoning students and recent graduates to Venice and Kassel this summer, Art & Education is excited to announce an open call for reviews of the 59th Venice Biennale and Documenta 15.

Students and recent graduates from bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral programs in curating, art writing, and art history are invited to contribute texts on the specific national pavilion, project, or public programming in Venice or Kassel that most sparks their interest. We want to encourage the next generation of art writers to flex their critical muscles, revel in close looking, and gain real-world publishing experience.

Art & Education Field Notes, our new editorial initiative, seeks writing that makes original connections between the work and the world, goes against the grain of reviews published elsewhere, and has fun in a genre sometimes overburdened with self-seriousness.

What might other observers have missed? What pavilions or projects merit further consideration?

We want to hear from you!

Interested writers should send the following in one pdf to [email protected]
—Travel dates
—Academic affiliation
—100-word description of research interests or the pavilion/project/program to be considered
—500-word writing sample from a recent paper or previously published work

Field Notes will begin publishing on Art & Education in June. Selected writers will be commissioned to write 1000-word reviews and receive compensation for their work. Field Notes will also be featured on e-flux and
