The Young Art Critics Mentoring Program is a partnership between AICA USA (the U.S. section of the International Association of Art Critics) and CUE Art Foundation, which pairs emerging writers with AICA mentors to produce original essays for catalogues accompanying exhibitions at the CUE space in the heart of Chelsea at 511 West 25th Street. Sophie Landres’ essay on Yayoi Asoma’s paintings (curated by Stephen Westfall) and Christine Licata’s essay on Marina Adams’ paintings (curated by Norma Cole) appeared in separate catalogues that also included texts by the curators of the exhibitions, which will be on view from October 16 to November 29, 2008. Eleanor Heartney acted as mentor for Christine, and Lilly Wei for Sophie. 10/14/08
