MONDAY presents experiments in arts writing that invite readers to imagine future forms of criticism. The contributing writers have in common a playful approach to their writing. Their subjects extend beyond fine arts to include performance, style, manifestos—all manner of cultural expression. Published by the Jacob Lawrence Gallery at the University of Washington, MONDAY seeks to be both accessible and rigorous, and above all to remind us that our approach to cultural criticism can be as heterogeneous as the themes it addresses. Each year, one of MONDAY’s biannual print publications is created under the editorial guidance of the resident artist of the Jacob Lawrence Legacy Residency.

MONDAY acknowledges the generous support of its donors.
