Grants The Artadia Awards

Artadia Brooklyn, New York, United States

Opportunity Description

U.S. National Deadline: Varies – The Artadia Awards provide financial support, exposure and recognition to artists. The awards are unrestricted, allowing artists to use the funds in any way they choose.

Each year, an open-call application is made available in each of the six active partner cities. Supporting artists equitably is a critical part of the Artadia Award process: we consider the unique populations of each community and are proud to reflect our country’s diversity with an Awardee pool that is over 50 percent female and over 40 percent persons of color.

In addition to financial support, Awardees can participate in the Artadia Network to receive structured opportunities for valuable new connections and resource sharing as well as receive a dedicated webpage on Artadia’s online Artist Registry. Connections fostered by Artadia have facilitated major steps in Awardees’ careers, such as inclusion in prominent exhibitions (e.g. five Awardees were featured in the 2017 Whitney Biennial, and six in 2019).

Beyond Artadia’s anchored program cities, we offer periodic awards with partners such as NADA, EXPO, Prospect New Orleans, and 21c Museum Hotels.

Applicants must be a contemporary visual artist, making artwork for presentation in a contemporary art context: museum, galleries, arts non-profit, the public art realm, etc. Artadia does not fund filmmakers making films for distribution in cinematic venues, or those working in choreography presented outside of a contemporary art context.

Artadia chooses to fund artists in cities that demonstrate a commitment to contemporary art. These cities are notable for the active presence of local artists in the community, art institutions recognized for innovative contemporary programming, a commercial art market that offers artists opportunities to show their work locally and at art fairs, and exemplary schools that prepare artists through undergraduate and graduate programs.

SELECTIONS
A jury of three curators assembled by Artadia, including one locally based curator, reviews all applications and determines a short list of six Finalists. A second jury, assembled by Artadia, made up of one juror from the application review and one new juror conducts virtual studio visits with each Finalist for 45 minutes.*

AWARDS
Following the studio visits, the second round jury will designate three Awardees to receive unrestricted funds of $10,000*, as well as access to the Artadia Network. Awardees are determined based on the sole discretion of the jury. *Marciano Artadia Awardee receives unrestricted funds of $25,000.

For their time and labor in the application process, Artadia provides stipends to each Finalist ultimately not chosen as an Awardee.
