Contemporary Art Writing Daily’s 9.5 Year Anniversary!

Over the last 9.5 years, perhaps our greatest joy has been the kindness and the angry emails we’ve received from artists. Contemporary Art Writing Daily arose from a desire to stand against the hegemony of the image surpassing all critical thought, and the support and encouragement we’ve received from so many of the artists we most admire has been the fuel driving all of our efforts. We’ve used that fuel to create this website, which gives the public access to nearly 3,000 articles documenting recent art history. Just in the last two weeks, we’ve said great things.

In that spirit of gratitude for the artists we’ve learned from, we’re honored to announce our new Artist Committee. We’re grateful to have the ongoing advice and support of your name here.

We’re ultimately here because of you! Thank you for being here over the years and learning about artists alongside us. Advertising alone is not enough to cover the costs of doing this important work, so we need your help. In order to maintain this small organization, it’s crucial that we raise $150,000 in this landmark year. Please make a non tax-deductible donation here to help us reach our goal.

We’d like to thank everyone, the artists, art spaces, supporters, and friends who have made it possible for our small no-profit organization to survive for so many years. Without your help, we wouldn’t have been able to go 9.5 years basically missing only a few days, or creating Contemporary Art Writing Quarterly. We hope to continue to be of service to the international art community.
