Berlin-based artist Tracey Snelling has been awarded the 2020 Foundwork Artist Prize, now in its second year. In recognition of her outstanding multidisciplinary practice, Snelling will receive an unrestricted $10,000 grant and studio visits with each member of Foundwork’s 2020 jury:
Curators Rachel Adams (Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts), Natasha Ginwala (Gwangju Biennale; Gropius Bau), and Humberto Moro (Museo Tamayo; SCAD Museum of Art); gallerists Anat Ebgi (Anat Ebgi Gallery) and Michael Ruiz (Future Gallery); and performance and video artist Kalup Linzy.
Three artists were named to Foundwork’s 2020 short list: Bellingham, Washington-based painter Andrea Joyce Heimer; Mexico City-based multidisciplinary artist Melanie McLain; and Brooklyn-based multidisciplinary artist Joiri Minaya. Snelling and the short-listed artists will each participate in long-form interviews in Foundwork’s Dialogues program conducted by guest editors Alina Cohen, Isabel Flower, Francesca Gavin, and Wendy Vogel.
