As part of our effort to support art criticism and journalism about historically underrepresented regions of the world, we’re excited to announce that we have partnered with Y.ES Contemporary to publish the winner of this year’s Y.ES Contemporary Art Writers Grant.
Y.ES Contemporary is a non-collecting arts program focused on creating opportunities for outstanding contemporary artists from El Salvador, increasing their visibility through grants and workshops, curatorial trips, exhibitions, talks, and studio visits both locally and globally. The annual Y.ES Contemporary Art Writers Grant, established in 2017, aims to promote arts criticism by supporting coverage of contemporary practice in and about the country.
Y.ES will award $500 to an individual or collective located locally or internationally to produce a 1000-1500 word article for Hyperallergic on contemporary arts practice in El Salvador.
An independent jury of experts will select the 2020 Y.ES Contemporary Art Writers Grant recipient. The jury members include:
- Hrag Vartanian, Co-founder & Editor-in-Chief of Hyperallergic (& podcast host)
- Gabriela Rangel, Artistic Director of MALBA in Buenos Aires
- Susana Marcelo, Professor of Central American Studies at California State University, Northridge
Apply by May 15, 2020.
