Art at UC Press

The University of California Press is an award-winning publisher of scholarly and trade titles on art and visual culture. With a long tradition of publishing on American art, the press cultivates authors who challenge previously established boundaries in the field, amplify the voices of understudied artists, and forge new methods of studying visual culture, especially through transnational scholarship. Designed to drive change and give voice, reach, and impact to the brightest minds, our titles range from lavishly-illustrated scholarly studies, important primary source anthologies, and exhibition catalogs co-published in partnership with major museums across the nation. The art list features books that are in conversation with the deeply interdisciplinary lists at UC Press as a whole, and together, they better enable us to understand the place of visual culture in the world.

Meet the Editor

Although we are unable to see you in person, we'd still love for you to "stop by the booth" and meet with us virtually. Want to pitch your book? Come prepared with clear statements of your argument, your audience, and why you want to write this book. Learn more about Arts Editor Archna Patel. From February 16-25, Archna will be taking 20 minute meetings to discuss book proposals. Schedule a meeting.
