Programs

Momus offers mentorship, training, and professional development programs to attend to the heightened stakes, increasing potential, and renewed challenges in art publishing. We are committed to a definition of art writing and criticism that is plural, inclusive, and rigorous.

The Momus Emerging Critics Residency and the Momus / Eyebeam Critical Writing Fellowship are economically-accessible programs that seek to transparently chart opportunities in the field of writing on art while working to better serve underrepresented and under-served participants, and offering hands-on strategies for navigating the field.

Over the past 3 years and half-dozen residencies, the impact of mentorship and career access in art publishing has become all too evident to us. We are committing to thinking deeply about who these mentorship opportunities serve, and how mentorship affects career trajectories, connects peers, and shapes creative lives.
