Unrestricted $10K grant and studio visits
The Foundwork Artist Prize is an annual juried award inaugurated in 2019 to recognize outstanding practice by contemporary artists. The honoree receives an unrestricted 10,000 USD grant and studio visits with the jurors who include progressive curators, gallerists, and artists. The honoree and three short-listed artists are also featured in interviews as part of our Dialogues program. Artists will need to sign up and create their profiles on Foundwork by October 15 to be considered for the 2020 Prize.

Foundwork is a platform for artists to introduce their work to people across the global contemporary art community. Our purpose is to enable access between artists, curators, and collaborators wherever they are based. The project was inspired by founder Adam Yokell’s experience running a gallery in Brooklyn where he worked mainly with emerging artists. Wanting for a broader way to conduct artist research, he decided to develop Foundwork as a tool for artists and collaborators.
