What is Cultbytes?

Cultbytes covers the expansive field of contemporary art from a broad but critical perspective. Our writers are at the heart of our content. We publish pieces by the most interesting emerging and established critics, artists, and curators, poets, journalists, and art collectors. 

In support of artists and the art world, Cultbytes was founded in 2016 as an online publishing platform to promote interdisciplinary and non-hierarchical art criticism.
