Benefits of a Publication Fellowship

Peripheral Vision is a digital journal read by arts professionals, curators, admissions committees, and collectors around the world. All journal content is publicly accessible online and distributed via our social media platforms and free email subscription. For many artists, a Peripheral Vision article will be the first substantive critical analysis of their work by a professional critic in a public forum, and may be invaluable to attracting grants, residencies, exhibitions, job offers, or promotions.

Editorial Review

Peripheral Vision Arts awards Publication Fellowships on the basis of merit to those artists with a proven commitment to their craft through a mastery of technique, innovativeness of concept, educational experience, and/or professional practice, and the degree to which the work invites substantive critical inquiry.
