This year’s jurors were Nancy Lim, Associate Curator, Painting and Sculpture, SFMoMA, Niama Safia Sandy, Curator, Lecturer, and Multidisciplinary Artist, Susanna V. Temkin, Curator, El Museo del Barrio, and Nat Trotman, Curator, Performance and Media, Guggenheim Museum.

The Awardees will each receive $10,000 in unrestricted funds.

“Representing a diverse cohort working across sculpture, installation, and social practice, Dacres, Meris, and Strada & Keren were selected from a strong pool of nearly 500 applicants whose practices I have been privileged to learn about throughout the jury process.” stated Temkin. Fellow juror Trotman expressed similar sentiments “All six Finalists should be recognized for their extraordinary work, which truly represents the strength, breadth, and complexity of the artistic community in New York City. I am honored to have been able to learn about their practices and to contribute to Artadia’s essential programming in support of artists.”

The 2022 New York 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 throughout the five boroughs–Manhattan, Brooklyn, the Bronx, Queens, and Staten Island–for a minimum of two years.
