About Boston Art Review

Boston Art Review is a 501(c)3 nonprofit arts organization that facilitates discourse about contemporary arts and culture through publishing, programming, and events in Boston and beyond. Boston Art Review elevates diverse perspectives while bridging gaps between criticism, coverage, and community engagement.

Boston Art Review‘s print magazine is published twice annually while the online platform regularly features interviews, reviews, profiles, critical perspectives, and other multidisciplinary content. In addition to publishing, Boston Art Review produces the only weekly curated arts calendar for the region, co-presents the Emerging Boston Art Writing Fellowship program, and hosts community events. 

Boston Art Review is committed to amplifying Boston’s reputation as a vibrant contemporary art city and serving as a model for a more connected arts ecosystem where contemporary artists, community spaces, and writers all thrive.

The publication seeks to foster inter-institutional and city-wide discourse that attempts to break down silos. As we continue to bridge the gaps between coverage, criticism, and community engagement, we are careful not to create a sense of cultural homogeneity. Rather, we seek to elevate and give voice to individuals, perspectives, and subcultures under the umbrella of contemporary art and culture in Boston and beyond.

Our first print publication was published in April of 2018. Previous editors have included Lauren Pellerano Gomez, Betsy Reid Willett, and Philip Zminda among many other incredible team members who have donated thousands of unpaid hours to this work.

Boston Art Writing Fellowship

Praise Shadows Art Gallery and Boston Art Review are partnering to present the 2024 Emerging Boston Art Writing Fellowship. The program supports two individuals based in Boston ages 18–21 who are interested in expanding their knowledge of the city’s contemporary art community through hands-on experience writing reviews, artist interviews, and exhibition texts while deepening their understanding of the operations behind a commercial gallery. This fellowship is not a traditional internship, but rather a curriculum-based program with learning at the center. 

See this page for more information about the fellowship.
