Edra Soto is Awarded the Inaugural Foundwork Artist Prize

Chicago-based multidisciplinary artist Edra Soto has been awarded the inaugural Foundwork Artist Prize. In recognition of her outstanding civically-engaged practice, Soto will receive an unrestricted $10,000 grant and studio visits with each of the 2019 jurors: artist DeWitt Godfrey, Outsider Art Fair Director Becca Hoffman, Esopus Magazine Founding Editor Tod Lippy, Embajada Gallery Director and Independent Curators International (ICI) Director of Development Manuela Paz, and Stoneleaf Retreat Artistic Director and IFPDA Fair Director Helen Toomer.

The jury has also named three short-listed artists for special mention: New York-based Christian Ruiz Berman, Queens-based Elliott Jerome Brown Jr., and Detroit-based Julie Schenkelberg. In conjunction with the Prize, Foundwork has launched a new artist interview program, Dialogues, starting with an interview of Soto conducted by guest editor Scott Indrisek. Ruiz Berman, Brown Jr., Schenkelberg, and other artists will be featured in Dialogues interviews by other visiting editors in the coming weeks.

The Foundwork Artist Prize is a new juried grant awarded to recognize and support outstanding artists on Foundwork. For more information visit foundwork.art.

Columbia Visual Arts MFA Program

The Visual Arts MFA Program at Columbia University School of the Arts attracts emerging artists of unusual promise from around the world. They comprise a vibrant community studying with exceptional faculty at a renowned research institution in the global center that is New York City. Upon graduating, our students join a diverse and welcoming circle of distinguished alumni.

The Visual Arts MFA Program is interdisciplinary and offers an MFA degree in Visual Arts rather than in one specific medium. The two-year studio program, taught by internationally celebrated artists, allows students to pursue drawing, moving image, new genres, painting, photography, printmaking, and sculpture.

We are very happy to announce the first major change to the format of Contemporary Art Daily in nearly 11 years. From now on, in addition to our normal coverage, we will begin including occasional selections made by a small but growing network of outside contributors. Posts chosen by contributors will be clearly labeled, so you can see who chose what.

These contributors represent both existing channels of influence on our coverage and new ones. Our goal is to broaden the site’s perspective. At the start of the program, our contributors include Tenzing Barshee, Erin Christovale, Jacob Fabricius, Christina Li, Sohrab Mohebbi, Misako Rosen, and Big Apple Circus.

Please look forward, as we are, to seeing which projects they choose! And if there’s anyone you’d like to suggest as a future contributor, please send us an email: office@contemporaryartdaily.com
