The Inaugural Foundwork Artist Prize – Call for Artists

Foundwork, a new artist platform for the contemporary art community, announces the first annual Foundwork Artist Prize, an unrestricted $10,000 juried grant. In addition to this financial support, the winner will receive a studio visit with each of the five jurors, all experienced practitioners and members of Foundwork’s advisory board. To be considered, artists must create a profile on Foundwork by September 1, 2019.

For those who aren’t yet familiar, Foundwork is a platform designed to help connect artists and collaborators across the art industry. It’s a focused venue for artists to introduce their work to a global art audience, where curators, gallerists, and other collaborators can research and engage with practicing artists wherever they’re located. Foundwork is a Brooklyn-based company run by a former gallerist. Its advisors and community include curators, gallerists, art fair and residency directors, professors, and artists.

The 2019 Foundwork Artist Prize will be limited to US residents due to foreign regulations. However, Foundwork is a global platform and is proud to feature a growing community of artists based in over thirty countries. Foundwork artist memberships are $4 per month but are free for students at graduate or undergraduate art schools. Artists can join any time and should see the FAQ and Official Rules on Foundwork for more information. If you have any questions, please contact support@foundwork.art.

NADA House

NADA House, the organization’s second off-site exhibition on Governors Island, features over 45 artists from NADA Member galleries and non-profits in a new, expanded format across 34 rooms in three historic, turn-of-the-century Colonial Revival houses. The collaborative, public exhibition will be on view every weekend, Friday through Sunday, 11am–5pm from May 2, 2019 to August 4, 2019.There will be a special opening preview held on Thursday, May 2nd from 1–5pm with a performance by Melina Ausikaitis (Regards gallery) at 3pm. On Saturday, May 4th, there will be performances by Ayana Evans (EFA Robert Blackburn Printmaking Workshop) at 1pm, 3pm and a performance by electronic musician Laraaji at 4pm. The exhibition will be free and open to the public, with monthly programmatic activations and performances.

NADA House is an opportunity for NADA members to stage a group show in an intimate and unusual setting, with only one or two artists on display in each room. NADA House reflects the camaraderie intrinsic to NADA’s mission, and exemplifies the organization’s adaptive approach to finding new models to present work from its community. Responding to the unique context of Governors Island and the specific character of these houses, many participating artists will present work that speaks to the island’s changing identity over time – from its origins as Lenape land occupied by Native Americans of the Manhattan region to its role in the Revolutionary War, and later from its use by the US Army and Coast Guard to its current state as a site for artistic, scientific, and urban experimentation. For a full list of participating artists and galleries, click here.
