Published by the Jacob Lawrence Gallery at the University of Washington, MONDAY presents experiments in arts writing that invite readers to imagine future forms of criticism. In a range of accessible and rigorous forms, its contributors dig into subjects that extend from fine arts to all manner of cultural expression, reminding us that approaches to cultural criticism can be as heterogeneous as the themes they address. Each year, one of MONDAY’s biannual print publications is created under the editorial guidance of the Jacob Lawrence Legacy Resident.



The MONDAY website debuted on March 31, 2020, with the essays from Volume 4. MONDAY may also be followed on Instagram.


Copies of MONDAY are available at the following locations: University Book Store, Elliott Bay Book Company, Third Place Books, Bulldog News, Café Presse, Kinokuniya Seattle, and Village Books. It may also be purchased online. Proceeds support the next issue of the journal.
