The Creative Capital | Andy Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Grant Program named its 2016 grantees today. A total of $695,000 will be given to the 20 winning writers, who will each receive somewhere between $15,000 and $50,000.
The grants recognize arts writing in four categories—articles, blogs, books, and short-form. The winning proposals and projects include Claire Bishop’s book OS XXI: Contemporary Art and Attention in the Twenty-First Century and Alicia Guzman’s blog Tierra. Taylor Aldridge, the founder of Arts.Black who wrote an essay for this magazine about contemporary art’s sticky relationship to race, is among those recognized for short-form writing.
