Applications are open for the Future Art Writers Award offered by the national arts foundation MOZAIK Philanthropy. US art writers of all ages and professional backgrounds have until March 15, 2022, to submit an abstract for an essay, review, or feature on the virtual exhibition Ecosystem X, which features work by the winners of MOZAIK’s Future Art Awards. Proposals should focus on the art on view and the theme of this award cycle: an arts-based reimagining of life on Earth.
Ecosystem X aims to reimagine the symbiotic interrelationship between humanity and the Earth, illustrating that art holds the power to remap and re-code our collective trajectory around polemics like climate, human rights, and democracy. The works of 40 US artists are now on view in a curated, circular, carbon-neutral exhibition.
Up to six $2,000 grants will be issued to writers who demonstrate an original and compelling point of view, to be published in the second edition of the MOZAIK E-ZINE.
Proposals can address general and specialized art audiences. Writers working on experimental or otherwise non-traditional arts writing are also invited to apply. BIPOC and other historically marginalized or underserved art writers are especially encouraged to submit.
- 250 word abstract of the proposed essay on the virtual exhibition
- Short bio of no more than 500 words
- Writing sample of no more than 5 pages
Grants will be awarded upon receipt of the text, which will undergo editorial review.
To submit your proposal, email email@example.com by March 15, 2022.
