ART INDEX is an independent contemporary art and criticism publication committed to providing a forum for regionally-specific conversations in arts and visual culture.

It is guided by a serious commitment to critical thinking, considered reading, and intellectual accessibility. ART INDEX publishes reviews, essays, and excerpted conversations driven by ideas, and resists the idolization of individual artists, entities, and organizations. We strive to publish a wide range of voices and ideas, ranging from the academic to the experimental. 

ART INDEX is currently based in Nashville, Tennessee, writing about the state of contemporary art.
