Artadia is pleased to announce the six Finalists for the 2022 New York Award:

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

The Finalists will each receive virtual studio visits with second-round jurors, who will ultimately select three artists to receive $10,000 in unrestricted funds.

“It has been an awesome privilege to be a juror for Artadia’s 2022 New York award. I am grateful to have had the opportunity to bear witness to all of this thoughtful and exciting art at such a crucial time!” stated Sandy. Of the artist submissions under consideration, she remarked: “The brilliance and deep rigor of the singular works submitted by this year’s artists certainly made our task challenging.” Fellow juror, Lim added “I was thrilled to see the power and promise of so many applicants and to find our way to this year’s six extraordinary finalists, whose practices address the present moment with rigor and endless inspiration.”

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.
