The Andy Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Grant has awarded $675,000 to 22 writers to support critical writing on contemporary art. The grants range from $15,000 to $50,000 and are awarded to writers addressing general and specialized art audiences in three categories: Books, articles, and short-form writing.
Among the authors receiving grants to support forthcoming book projects are Naeem Mohaiemen and Anjali Singh for Harmit Singh’s War, Jeannine Tang for Living Legends: The Art and Care of Queer and Transgender History, and Ariel Goldberg for Just Captions: Ethics of Trans and Queer Image Cultures. A complete list of 2020 Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Grant winners is available on the Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Grant website.
President of the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts Joel Wachs said, “Through their rigorous and generous engagement with artists and art works, their close reading of historical and cultural contexts, and their creative juxtaposition of disparate practices, arts writers illuminate the unique way art engages with and explicates our idea of a national consciousness.”
