“International Art English—jargoned, easily mimicked, unintelligible, meaningless purple art-prose—is an emergency pseudo-language collectively invented by desperate and inexperienced art writers,” notes Gilda Williams, author of “How to Write About Contemporary Art.” Don’t fall victim to the senseless IAE lingo—sign up for BURNAWAY’s Emerging Art Writers Mentorship Program.
The Emerging Art Writers Mentorship Program seeks to develop the voices of new art writers by providing them with the necessary tools, resources, and connections to significantly advance and define their careers as writers.
