Robert Motherwell Book Award
To qualify for the 2024 Robert Motherwell Book Award, a book must have been first published in 2023, in English. (Our definition of modernism is broad and we will consider books that deal with art created between the mid-nineteenth century and the present.) Typically, an eligible book will have been written by a single author; but a volume with co-authors would be eligible if the tenor of the book is that of a coherent work with a recognizably unified voice. Anthologies and collections of essays are therefore not eligible.
Nomination Timeline & Procedure
Publishers may nominate any books on their 2023 list that they believe merit the jury’s consideration. Nominations may be submitted starting November 1, 2023 and will be accepted until December 15, 2023.
Publishers of books that the jury wishes to consider further will be contacted in February 2024, and asked to ship review copies directly to each of the three members of the jury.
Inquiries may be sent to email@example.com.
