Artadia, a non-profit grantmaking organization and nationwide community of visual artists, curators, and patrons, is pleased to announce the 2023 New York City Artadia Awards Finalists:
The 2023 New York City Artadia Awards application was open to visual artists working in any visual media, at any stage in their career, who have been living and working within the five boroughs: the Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens, and Staten Island for a minimum of two years.
This year’s Round 1 jurors were Andrea Andersson, Founding Director and Chief Curator, Rivers Institute for Contemporary Art & Thought; Manuela Moscoso, Executive Director, Center for Art, Research and Alliances (CARA); and TK Smith, Writer, Critic, and Assistant Curator of Art of the African Diaspora, Barnes Foundation. The Round 2 jurors will be Manuela Moscoso joined by Mia Locks, Independent Curator.
“Artadia’s is a particular invitation — to support artists of exceptional merit at an inflection point of career and process — sensitive to the fact that time and timing shape the possible,” remarked juror Andrea Andersson. “In our selections, I think we identified artists who give a range of meaning to sensitivity, excellence, and rigor. And they gave us pause– stopped us in our tracks– in an affirming pool of talent.”
