The Future Art Writers Award created by MOZAIK Philanthropy will offer two $2,000 grants to emerging or established art writers who write about contemporary visual art and its contributions to democracy. The Future Art Writers Award calls for U.S. art writers of all ages and professional backgrounds to submit an abstract (of about 250 words) for an essay, review, or feature they would write that relates to the Future Art Awards Virtual Exhibition — with a focus on the art on view and this year’s theme: Re-Imagining Democracy.
Welcoming hundreds of artists ranging from 17 years to 75 years of age and representing submissions from 62% BIPOC artists across 38 U.S. states, MOZAIK Philanthropy’s 2nd Annual Awards program drew inspiration from social and environmental justice movements of the recent past, including Black Lives Matter, Stop Asian Hate, Me Too, Times Up, Keep It In The Ground, Resist, and Love Wins, among others.
Two awards will be issued to submitting writers that demonstrate an original and compelling point of view in their proposed essay/review/feature of the 2021 Future Art Awards Virtual Exhibition, to be published as part of the e-catalogue for the exhibition. Proposed literary projects can address general and specialized art audiences. Writers working on experimental or non-traditional arts writing styles are also invited to apply and BIPOC and other historically marginalized or underserved art writers are encouraged to submit a proposal.
Proposals must include:
- A 250 word abstract of the proposed essay on the virtual exhibition
- Short bio (no more than 500 words);
- A writing sample (no more than 5 pages).
Free to submit. Deadline: July 15, 2021
