The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts has announced grants totaling $3.81 million in support of publications, exhibitions, and visual arts programming, including artist residencies and film screenings.
Grants ranging from $60,000 to $120,000 were awarded to forty-one artist-centered organizations with practices that are experimental, underrecognized, and/or challenging in nature. Organizations receiving program support include the Oklahoma Visual Arts Coalition ($100,000 over two years) in Oklahoma City; the Center for Land Use Interpretation ($100,000 over two years) in Culver City, California; and the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council ($120,000 over two years) in New York City.
Recipients of exhibition support include the Diaspora Vibe Cultural Arts Incubator ($80,000) in Miami for "Inter | Sectionality: Diaspora Art in the Creole City"; the Parrish Art Museum ($100,000) in Water Mill, New York, for "Telling Stories" and "Platform: Tomashi Jackson"; and the Power Plant ($100,000) in Toronto, Canada, for "Arctic/Amazon."
"The grantees in this round range from small arts organizations with one staff member to major museums, yet they all provide essential resources for artists as well as innovative platforms for critical cultural dialogue," said Warhol Foundation president Joel Wachs. "Creative risk-taking is at the heart of this country's most meaningful social, political, and cultural developments, therefore we are proud to stand behind artist-centered organizations that support experimental practice."
