This year’s semi-final jurors were Daniel Byers, John R. and Barbara Robinson Family Director, Carpenter Center for the Visual Arts, Taylor Bythewood-Porter, Curator, California African American Museum (CAAM), and Bianca Morán, Independent Curator based in New York City.

On the jurying process, Morán remarked: “Participating as a juror for the Boston award this year was a tremendous pleasure. The opportunity to look at artistic practices across a specific region and then to be in dialogue with colleagues in different cities was so refreshing and inspiring. I am grateful to have had the chance to participate!”

It’s an honor to be a part of the review process, to provide artists a platform to share their practice,” shared fellow juror Bythewood-Porter. “With all of the amazing submissions it was challenging to narrow in on the finalists’ but alongside the other panelists we’ve arrived at an outstanding group.”
