The term “emerging artist” is thrown around a lot in the art world, but what does it really mean? Here are some ideas to consider when trying to define exactly what an emerging artist is:
Emerging professional artists are the principal creators of new work, and:
who take risks and embrace challenges;
whose developing voices reveal significant potential;
who are rigorous in their approach to creation and production;
who have some evidence of professional achievement but not a substantial record of accomplishment; and
who are not recognized as established artists by other artists, curators, producers, critics, and arts administrators.
- The term emerging refers to artistic development, professional accomplishment, and recognition, not the evolution within an artist’s work.
- Artists who show significant potential, yet are under-recognized. Examples of recognition include exhibitions, critical reviews, commissions, performances, grant awards, residencies, fellowships, publications, and productions.
What is your idea/definition of an emerging artist?

There’s a new way to stay up to date on the re-launch of The Unexposed Magazine… Twitter! Follow @TheUnexposedMag for announcements, updates, and the sharing of insightful/interesting things happening in the art world!
I want to take a minute and apologize to anyone out there who hasn’t forgotten about The Unexposed magazine. Personally, I took too much on this past year and I let the magazine get away from me… But no longer!
This semester I have a chance to work on an independent study, and I chose to use it to re-launch The Unexposed magazine! Right now, I am working towards a total magazine make-over by simplifying the submission process, and re-designing the magazine completely. Don’t worry, it will be amazing as ever, and still geared towards the emerging artist.
Here I will keep you updated on how the re-launch is going, as well as to release any themes / submission deadlines coming up in the near future! The new magazine will relaunch at the end of April 2014!
Thank you for your continued support!
