Launched in 2016, and edited by Texas artist and art historian Scott Gleeson, Peripheral Vision was created to respond to professional artists' need for substantive critical recognition. Since issuing the first call, Peripheral Vision has awarded 124 Publication Fellowships and has commissioned over 156,500 words of content. We have thousands of followers across platforms and are growing by 100+ followers per day on Instagram. As we grow we will create new publication and curatorial initiatives.
