CAA invites nominations and self-nominations for two field-editor positions for exhibition reviews in caa.reviews for a four-year term, through June 30, 2012. Each field editor covers a geographic region of the United States; needed now are editors covering art exhibitions in the Northwest and Southeast United States.
caa.reviews is an online journal devoted to the peer review of new books, museum exhibitions, and projects relevant to the fields of art history, visual studies, and the arts. Candidates may be artists, art historians, art critics, art educators, curators, or other art professionals; institutional affiliation is not required. Field editors should live in the region covered.
Each field editor commissions reviews of important museum and gallery exhibitions for caa.reviews. He or she selects shows to be reviewed, commissions reviewers, determines the appropriate character of the reviews, and works with reviewers to develop manuscripts for publication. These field editors work with the caa.reviews Editorial Board as well as the caa.reviews editor-in-chief and CAA’s staff editor. Each field editor is expected to keep abreast of current and upcoming exhibitions (and other related projects) in his or her geographic region.
The Council of Field Editors meets annually at the CAA Annual Conference. Field editors must pay travel and lodging expenses to attend the conference.
Candidates must be current CAA members and should not be serving on the editorial board of a competitive journal or on another CAA editorial board or committee. Nominators should ascertain their nominee’s willingness to serve before submitting a name; self-nominations are also welcome. Send a statement describing your interest in and qualifications for appointment, CV, and contact information to: Chair, caa.reviews Editorial Board, CAA, 275 Seventh Ave., 18th Floor, New York, NY 10001. Deadline extended: September 15, 2008.
