Art Magazine Reading Group

January 31: X-TRA Contemporary Art Quarterly

BURNAWAY’s Art Magazine Reading Group returns in 2019! Each month, we’ll gather to discuss an art magazine we’ve read cover to cover, addressing the content of the issue as well as the magazine’s structure, editorial voice, and graphic design. It’s like book club, but with Artforum and beer.

For our January meeting, the group will read and discuss the Winter 2019 issue of Los Angeles-based contemporary art quarterly X-TRA. The issue includes interviews with artist Janiva Ellis and curator Paul Chaat Smith, a review that considers Ellsworth Kelly’s recently opened Austin alongside the Rothko Chapel in Houston, and an artist project by ektor garcia.

Copies of X-TRA are available for purchase in the shop at Atlanta Contemporary and on the magazine’s website.

Our meeting will take place on Thursday, January 31 from 6-8 pm at the BURNAWAY office, located at 685 Linwood Ave. NE, Ste. 300, in Atlanta.

Art Writers Mentorship Program

The Art Writers Mentorship Program (AWMP) 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. The program includes monthly mentoring sessions with leading national arts writers and critics, peer-to-peer critiques and reviews, and guidance for developing professional business practices and cultivating writing techniques, style, and voice.

Past mentors in the program have included artnet News critic Ben Davis, writer and editor Orit Gat, critic and poet Raphael Rubinstein, and Chicago-based professor and critic Susan Snograss, among others.
