Artadia is pleased to announce the six Finalists for the 2022 Los Angeles Award:

This year’s Finalists jurors for  the 2022 Los Angeles Awards  Cycle were Alexandra Foradas, Curator of Visual Art, MASS MoCA, Alexis Lowry, Curator, Dia Art Foundation, and Jennifer King, Associate Curator, LACMA.

The Finalists will each hold virtual studio visits with second-round jurors, who will ultimately select two artists to receive $10,000 in unrestricted funds supported by Angeles Art Fund and Capital Group, and one artist to receive $25,000 supported by the Marciano Art Foundation.

Alexis Lowry states “The jurying process offered an unparalleled opportunity to do a deep dive into the incredible work being made in Los Angeles today. It was enriching to see the diversity of practices and the ways that these artists are grappling the exigent questions of our times. I enjoyed the rigorous conversations with the other jurors that led to the exceptional finalists, who approached these issues with care, humor, and urgency.”

The 2022 Los Angeles Artadia Award application was open to visual artists working in any visual media, at any stage in their career, who have been living and working within Los Angeles County for a minimum of two years. This was Artadia’s eighth Awards Cycle in Los Angeles.
