Tessa Solomon

Reporter, ARTnews

Tessa Solomon is a staff writer for ARTnews. She joined the publication in spring 2019 as a researcher assisting with the annual Top 200 Collectors list published each fall. She is a graduate of the University of Iowa, with a degree in creative writing and journalism; while living in the Midwest she discovered a hatred for deep-dish pizza. Tessa got her start in journalism after stints reviewing manuscripts for the Minneapolis-based publishing house Graywolf Press and the Brooklyn-based literary magazine, A Public Space (she happily still reads creative submissions for the latter). In New York City, Tessa worked as a digital assistant to BUST magazine, regularly reporting on the intersections of politics, arts, and feminism. Notable interviews and coverage include writers Marilynne Robinson and Lena Waithe, photographer Alex Prager, and dream pop duo Beach House. At the Daily Beast, Tessa assisted on the breaking news desk and contributed style and arts reporting, covering New York Fashion Week from the front row. Tessa lives in Brooklyn with a really great sound machine; you may have driven by her as she power walked across the Williamsburg bridge.
