The Andy Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Grant announces 2023 grantees

Twenty-seven writers have been selected in the most recent cycle of the Arts Writers Grant, receiving awards ranging from $15,000 to $50,000 in three categories: articles, books, and short-form writing, supporting projects that address both general and specialised art audiences, from short reviews for magazines and newspapers to in-depth scholarly studies.

‘The grantees engage urgent issues such as disability access and aesthetics, Indigenous communities and their art practices, transnational modernisms, queer and feminist art, and more,’ said Pradeep Dalal, Director, The Andy Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Grant. He added, ‘Reading the scholarship and criticism produced by arts writers every year is a reminder as to how such writing can challenge the constrictions that chronology and thematized ordering systems impose on our understanding of art and history. The field of contemporary arts writing is capacious, and its constantly expanding disciplinary borders are perhaps more porous now than ever.’
