CUE Art Critic Mentoring Program

CUE Art Critic Mentoring Program

This Deadline Expired: Thursday, April 4, 2019

The Art Critic Mentoring Program pairs emerging writers with established art critics appointed by AICA to compose a long-form critical essay on one of CUE’s exhibiting artists. One applicant will be chosen from the Philadelphia region. Over the course of two months, the writer will conduct studio visits with CUE exhibiting artist Natessa Amin and compose an essay for publication in a printed exhibition catalogue and online. The program is open to writers of any age in the early stages of their careers. Writers are awarded a $510 honorarium. The deadline for applicants based in or near Philadelphia is April 4, 2019.
To apply for the program, applicants must submit the following: 
  • Three writing samples:
    • Must be contemporary arts-related (no dance, literature, or commercial/feature film analysis).
    • The strongest samples are reviews, blog entries, short essays, and short-form writing.
    • School papers, research papers, dissertations, or exhibition proposals/summaries are not accepted.
  • A current CV containing relevant experience, max. 4 pages.
    • Writing samples and CV must be combined into a single PDF document (max. 20 pages total), labeled as follows: “ACMP application – Your Name – Location” (for example: “ACMP application – Jane Doe – NYC”).
