Artlab Editorial Fellowship Open Call

We are looking for two art writers whose forward-thinking insights and intimate ties to their communities and geographic regions offer a critical lens through which to view art as a bellwether for change.


Within the realm of art, writers act as the vital, informed witness, hyper-attuned to shifts both seismic and small, diligently assessing how the local ripples out into the universal and vice versa. As our world continues to become more interconnected, vast, and contradictory, a keen eye and voice is all the more valuable in understanding the complexities of contemporary life.

Since its inception in 2022, Artlab Editorial, under the auspices of Hyundai Artlab, has witnessed first hand how providing a platform for critical art writing is essential to a thriving global art ecosystem. As part of our goal to spark meaningful dialogue, cultivate empathy, and facilitate collaborations that connect across boundaries, we’re thrilled to announce the second year of the Artlab Editorial Fellowship. The application is open now through March 31, 2024, 11:59pm EST. Apply here. Eligibility requirements and FAQs can be found here.

We are looking for two art writers whose forward-thinking insights and intimate ties to their communities and geographic regions offer a critical lens through which to view art as a bellwether for change.

This fellowship is open to art writers from anywhere in the world, and at any stage of their career. The two selected fellows will be provided $10,000 each to produce three pieces of writing for Artlab Editorial in 2024. Additionally, each Fellow will be paired with one of this year’s Fellowship advisors for regular one-on-one guidance and mentorship throughout the program. 

Inspired by Artlab’s spirit of connectivity, artist Cynthia Alfonso created Vimbio, a digital commission created specifically for the Artlab Editorial Fellowship. Named after a type of willow tree found in Alfonso’s native Galicia, Spain, the work draws parallels between the use of vimbio as a traditional weaving material with the Fellowship’s mission to bring together and strengthen artistic communities around the world. 

Fellowship Structure

The Fellowship is designed to produce a vibrant body of new art writing and connect writers, readers, and artists around the world. With guidance from Artlab’s editors and advisors, fellows will write three pieces of web-based editorial content for publication on Artlab Editorial.

Fellows will be committing to writing one 700-word article in English every other month, for publication on Artlab Editorial from July through December of 2024. They will be expected to develop each article over the course of eight weeks, meeting with their advisor for in-depth development sessions, and working closely with Artlab Editorial’s editor via monthly touch-bases.

Meanwhile, Rojas brought us to the sunny shores of Miami, evaluating the tenuous balance and entropic flux of its rapidly evolving culture. “On the one hand, Miami’s risk-friendly, entrepreneurial spirit creates an environment where artistic freedom can flourish,” observes Rojas. “Those same factors are what has enabled sweeping gentrification, endangering diverse local communities.”

Apply to the Fellowship here by March 31, 2024 at 11:59PM EST.
