Peripheral Vision is an independent press dedicated to expanding critical dialogues about American art through visionary publication and curatorial initiatives. Our journal, Peripheral Vision, now in print, pairs artists with critics for the production of original texts in conjunction with our prestigious Publication Fellowship program. In spring 2018, we will launch Elements: New American Abstraction, a journal series covering internationally renown American abstractionists with contributions by leading scholars in the field. 

Launched in 2016, and edited by Texas artist and art historian Scott Gleeson, Peripheral Vision was created to fill a gap in critical coverage of American contemporary art. Since issuing the first call, Peripheral Vision has awarded 124 Publication Fellowships and has commissioned over 156,500 words of content. As we grow we will create new publication and curatorial initiatives.
