Announcing the AICA-USA Irving Sandler Award for Distinguished Art Criticism

Irving Sandler

The American chapter of the International Association of Art Critics (AICA-USA) is pleased to announce the establishment of
 
The AICA-USA Irving Sandler Award
for Distinguished Art Criticism

 
As an organization devoted to serving art writers and critics, we are committed to promoting and honoring excellence in young art critics. 
 
At a time when the very role and value of art criticism are in question, we look for guidance and inspiration to esteemed art critic and beloved board member and friend, Irving Sandler, who has tirelessly illuminated the role of art, artists and art criticism in the 20th and 21st centuries.
 
AICA-USA will bestow The AICA-USA Irving Sandler Award for Distinguished Art Criticism to a worthy young art critic on an annual basis.
 
This award marks a continuation of AICA-USA’s dedication to young critics and to excellence in art writing, exemplified by its existing programs: The Young Art Critics Mentoring Program, organized in partnership with the Cue Art Foundation; the Art Writing Workshop, a partnership with the Creative Capital | Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Grant Program; and the annual Distinguished Critic Lecture, hosted in collaboration with the Vera List Center for Art and Politics.

Headquartered in New York, AICA-USA's membership comprises over 400 critics, curators, scholars, and art historians working throughout the United States.
