Q. & A. Session

Question: Why should an artist apply to art journals and critical peer reviewed magazines?

Answer: 

  • Having the addition of critical coverage rather than just popular reviews allows a different community of interested shcolars and art writers to engage with your work. Critical reviews are taken more seriously by industry professionals and are a sign that both your and your work are capable of adressing different kinds of audiences. 
  • Getting reviewed in a critical journal is a special sign of committment to your work. It shows that you also read these journals and keep up on the critical discourses that surround the kind of art production you make. 
  • Being reviewed in a critical art jounral is also one of the best things you can have on your resume, esepcially as you move from being an emerging artist to a mid-career artist and you start applying to show in bigger galleries or for better teaching positions.
  • Critical reviews of your work are just as important as popular mentions in the press and shouldn't be neglected by any arts professional.
  • Also, having a handful of journals that you regularly read can help stimulate your creative process and makes it easier to talk about your work in a broader sense, including industry trends, critical purchase and how other artists are negotiating similar issues in their work.

PART 2: LIST CRITICAL ART JOURNALS THAT YOU WANT TO APPLY TO IN THE FUTURE ON QUIZ 6.

 

Always have a list of critical magazines that apply to the kind of work you make. Check their open calls and submission deadline regularly, and when there is a theme that fits your work make sure to apply.

If someone has already written something about your work that fits the open call, or, if you know someone who wants to write something about your work then you might want to alert them to a publishing opportunity for their writing in conjunction with gettting your art published so that  you can both benefit from an additional resume credit on your CV. 

Every Artist should have a list of critical art journals that they want to see their work featured in over the course of their career and apply regularly and often!
