Peripheral Vision Arts strives to provide valuable career development opportunities for talented emerging and mid-career creators by pairing top applicants with experienced art critics for the production of original essays and artist interviews. Peripheral Vision Arts accepts applications throughout the year for its Publication Fellowships, designed to offer publication opportunities to approximately the top 10 - 25% of applicants. By applying for a Fellowship and paying the associated Application Fee applicants agree to these Terms and acknowledge that Fellowship status is determined on the basis of merit by the editor and/or peer-reviewers and guest jurors. The decisions of the editor(s) are final and fees are non-refundable.
Publication Fellowships are available to professional artists and MFA graduate students living and working in the US only. BFA students are eligible only for the BFA Exhibition Fellowship. Top applicants are paired with a critic for an essay or interview at the discretion of the editor. Additional applicants will coordinate with the editor to complete our interview questionnaire. MFA students benefit from discounted application fees. All applicants for Article Publication Fellowships receive a Profile page and an Instagram takeover @peripheralvisionarts. Three online exhibitions will be hosted on the site each year, a salon-style group show, individual solo shows, and the BFA Exhibition. Each will be curated by a Peripheral Vision critic and will include an exhibition essay, Instagram takeover, and artist Project page. All content will become a permanent installation on the website and will be promoted through social media and the email subscription at the time of publication. For the salon-style group show the critic will draft an essay addressing common themes and the work of specific artists. For the solo shows, artists will be assigned to a critic who will draft a 500 word didactic text.
The Editor may modify texts as needed to insure quality. Interviews and Interview Questionnaires not meeting the minimum word count of 1750 words, submitted after the deadline, or which do not comply with editorial guidelines and suggestions may be rejected for publication until a suitable draft is produced.
