NEW YORK, NY.- Today, the Pollock-Krasner Foundation announces it awarded $2,685,000 to 106 artists and nonprofit organizations during its July 2021-June 2022 fiscal year grant cycle, providing essential support to U.S.-based and international artists. Spanning Los Angeles to India, the latest iteration of grant and award recipients comprise artists from 14 states and 16 countries. Since the Foundation’s establishment in 1985, it has awarded nearly 5,000 grants totaling over $84 million in 79 countries. Particularly critical during the continuing global health crisis, the Foundation’s ongoing funding imparts professional support to artists around the globe, allowing the grantees to create new work, purchase materials, rent studio space, prepare for and mount exhibitions, attend residencies, and offset living expenses. The Foundation continues to accept applications year-round for its individual grant program; for more information or to apply, please visit www.pkf.org.

“As we continue to support Lee Krasner’s legacy, our 2021-22 grant and award recipients illustrate the Foundation’s philanthropy thanks to the generosity of Krasner herself,” said Ronald D. Spencer, Chairman and CEO of the Pollock-Krasner Foundation. “She understood how important it is to give artists the funding they need to continue to create new work, and we are proud to expand the opportunities available to our recipients through support for their exhibitions and residency programs.”

This year, the Lee Krasner Award—bestowed in recognition of a lifetime of artistic achievement—is awarded to first time recipient Josely Carvalho. A So Paulo-born multimedia artist, Carvalho maintains studios in Rio de Janeiro and New York, and through her work seeks to highlight memory, women’s issues, and social justice. In addition to Carvalho, other Lee Krasner Award recipients include Laddie John Dill, Rita McBride, and Cheryl Ann Thomas, who were previously recognized and received additional support from the Foundation during the 2021-22 cycle. In addition to being the 2022 recipient of the Pollock Prize for Creativity, Beili Liu was awarded The Brian Wall Foundation Grant for Sculptors. The $25,000 prize identifies an exceptional sculptor and is awarded by The Brian Wall Foundation and administered by the Pollock-Krasner Foundation. Both awards support Liu’s project Dreams of the High North: Between Survival and Belonging, on view at H Gamle Prestegard, a Norwegian National Arts and Cultural Institution, June 2023 through September 2023.

In addition, the Pollock-Krasner Foundation also awarded grants to cultural institutions that engage directly with artists. This year’s organization grantees include: Villa Bergerie in Laguarres, Spain for residency program expenses; Wave Hill in Bronx, NY for artist residency and exhibition expenses; and the Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum in Ridgefield, CT in support of PKF grantee Milano Chow’s solo exhibition, Prima Facie.

In addition to the 2021-22 grant recipients, over the past year a number of Pollock-Krasner Foundation supported projects have come to fruition, including Detroit-born artist and PKF grantee Matthew Angelo Harrison’s exhibition, Proto, at Kunsthalle Basel, his first solo exhibition at a European institution. The Foundation also supported the production of Harrison’s first monograph, created to accompany the exhibition. Additionally, the Pollock-Krasner Foundation contributed funding to the Muse National d'Art Moderne Centre Pompidou in Paris, France, for the 352-page catalogue for the Women in Abstraction exhibition. Published by Editions du Centre Pompidou, the publication features five essays, 15 thematic topics, and 112 texts analyzing abstraction and the artistic impact of the women in the exhibition, as well as the cultural and feminist history of abstraction.
