Artwrit is an independent quarterly and monthly publication committed to excellence in art writing. Our mission is to uphold the highest standard in writing about the visual arts and to advance the discipline by providing a forum where its various forms—academic criticism, cultural-inquiry and editorial styles—can exist inclusively. Equally urgent is our mission to preserve the current cultural moment by way of rigorous coverage of art at present and utilizing living resources, as in our Oral History Initiative, to document our shared cultural present and past. Our hope is that in this pursuit, we will have created an invaluable resource for artists, critics, scholars and other interested parties.

Artwrit ceased regular publication in 2012. This website has been reformatted as an archive of all issues published.
