The Salon journal issue was developed to extend additional Publication Fellowship opportunities beyond the scope of our regular article collections. It follows the tradition of the annual group exhibition and features a single catalog essay by the guest curator. Open to American artists at all career stages, the goal is to present a cross-section of vital practices shaping contemporary art on the periphery of mainstream, commercial artworlds. This year's iteration of the Salon will introduce the work of 33 artists working across media and disciplines, emerging from top MFA and residency programs or holding university faculty positions.
