About Burnaway

Burnaway is an Atlanta-based digital magazine of contemporary art and criticism from the American South.

Since 2008, the magazine has brought vital critical dialogue to one of the most politically polarized, historically fraught, ecologically threatened, and economically disadvantaged parts of the United States. The issues facing Southern artists, institutions, curators, and writers often represent the country’s most pressing social and cultural challenges. Despite this, contemporary art in and from the region receives little national coverage or inclusion in major survey exhibitions, and even less internationally.

In addition to its publishing activities, Burnaway annually hosts the Art Writing Incubator, a five-week intensive for emerging art writers and critics, and other public programs.

Burnaway is a 501(c)(3) organization and has been certified by W.A.G.E.

PLATFORMS

BURNAWAY MAGAZINE features critical essays, interviews, and artist projects that give voice to the burgeoning but dispersed art world of the contemporary South. In 2020, the magazine’s publishing activities are guided by three editorial themes: Exurbs and the Rural, Waterways / Water Wars, and States of Leisure.

BA DAILY contains regularly published informational resources, including weekly staff picks and a monthly call for artists, as well as short-form exhibition reviews, bi-weekly news roundups, and the DIY Index.

MOOD RING is Burnaway’s artist column, a platform for experimentation and collaboration across the fields of visual art and online publishing. Each installment of Mood Ring takes its own form according to the particular specifications of the project.

ART GUIDES are resources for exploring the cultural offerings of major Southern cities (Atlanta, Nashville, New Orleans, Miami, Richmond, and Birmingham). Each guide includes a comprehensive list of and information on each city’s major museums, galleries, and DIY spaces

ART WRITING INCUBATOR (AWrI) is Burnaway’s signature annual writing intensive, which cultivates the next generation of critics through a series of day-long workshops with leading culture writers from around the country and one-on-one tutorials with Burnaway’s editors.
