Tesserae: an online art history publication 

A Note from the Editors

• • •

Dear Reader,


When we began Tesserae Press in mid-2020, it was done as a reaction to dwindling opportunities for art historians, artists, and writers brought on by the pandemic. Founding this press also gave us a sense of community, stability, and control amidst global uncertainty. We hope that this experience has been shared by those we have been fortunate enough to work with over the last 12 months.


As life returns to a (new) normal, we too must resume our full responsibilities. For the moment, we are stepping back from publishing to focus on our individual careers and personal lives. However, Tesserae is a labor of love, and we will certainly be back in the future.


We are temporarily closing our open submissions, but all published articles will remain on our site, so please feel free to browse. We’ve worked with some very talented emerging writers, and are proud to display their work here for you. We will be back later this year with new opportunities and calls for submissions, so please subscribe to our newsletter below to keep up to date on all things Tesserae.


With love, light, and gratitude,


Clarissa & Caroline
