Asian Contemporary Arts Consortium Writing Fellowship

Writing Fellowship

Art Practical, the online journal for visual arts criticism in the San Francisco Bay Area, and the Asian Contemporary Arts Consortium San Francisco (ACAC-SF) announce a new writing fellowship and invite entries for its inaugural year this fall.

While the San Francisco Bay Area has a diverse and vibrant visual arts scene, there is little visibility for critical dialogue that contextualizes issues in Asian contemporary art. By providing a platform for emerging writers, the Asian Contemporary Arts Consortium Writing Fellowship (ACAC Fellow) aims to promote and encourage critical thinking and writing on Asian contemporary art practices and discourses, with a particular emphasis on the events and exhibitions in the San Francisco Bay Area. The Bay Area visual arts community positions itself within a global context; this fellowship will encourage the recipient to examine where the intersections lie between artists of Asian descent living and working in the Bay Area, those living and working internationally, and artists of non-Asian descent living in Asia. Therefore, while priority will be given to exhibitions and events in the San Francisco Bay Area, the Fellow will not be restricted solely to coverage of this region. The winning entrant will be named the ACAC Fellow and will receive a $1,000 honorarium in support of his or her contributions as a writer for Art Practical. Over the course of a year, the ACAC Fellow will work under the direction of the magazine’s editorial team to contribute six reviews to Art Practical, with the potential to write a feature-length article and to collaborate with Art Practical ’s partner Bad at Sports on a podcast interview. Art Practical encourages emerging writers to refine their practice amidst those already renowned for their critical insight and provides valuable professional development through its rigorous editorial process.
The deadline is October 15, 2011.
