Momus is committed to a model of art writing and criticism that is plural and rigorous. Our residencies and fellowships are designed to support emerging writers through mentorship, peer networks, and professional development.

The Momus Residencies and Critical Writing Fellowship are programs that seek to transparently chart challenges and offer opportunities in the field of writing. These programs recognize the importance of mentorship and early career access in art publishing to connect peers, diversify the field, and shape creative lives.

Momus Talks is an ongoing series of public events hosted my Momus, often with our colleagues and collaborators internationally. Ranging in format from artist talks and critics in conversation events, to book launches and live podcasts recordings, Momus Talks aims to galvanize communities around a model of art writing and criticism that is plural and rigorous.
