Critical Art Writing Group
Beginning in 2017, this initiative was born out of the conviction that timely, robust, and well-researched art writing is integral to an arts ecosystem as well as in the ongoing effort to see our world anew. It is a series of gatherings for writers and artists to explore the intersection of theory and practice within contemporary art, and it is organized by Minh Nguyen (writer) and Emily Zimmerman (Director, Jacob Lawrence Gallery). Reviews and essays from these gatherings are published in Monday. Read more.
