Warhol Foundation Announces Fall 2021 Grantees


The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts has announced 49 winners of the Fall 2021 Grant. The grant, totaling $ 4.1 million, is issued by museums and arts organizations to support visual arts programs, exhibitions, and curator research. 50 percent of the funds available to cover administrative costs. Among the 20 first-time recipients are those whose innovative, collaborative and flexible programs have helped artists and prospered their practices, especially during times of turmoil. It provides the opportunity to expand its network to showcase its work to artists in Portland, Maine’s Indigo Arts Alliance, which supports black and brown artists in New England, and artists in Arizona, Mexico and Latin America. Includes the CALA Alliance of Phoenix, an interdisciplinary Latin arts organization. ..

“The Fall 2021 grantees are adopting and inventing new ways to meet the needs of artists facing obstacles that surface daily in unpredictable times,” said Joel Wax, Chairman of the Warhol Foundation. I will. ” “Artists are at the heart of the Foundation’s work, and as they evolve their practices, it is more important than ever to strengthen the organizations that support and empower them.”

Among the winners cited by the Foundation as representative of their commitment to the principles of freedom of artistic expression is the Brooklyn Artist Freedom Initiative. And the National Union for Censorship in New York has helped artists and art presenters who have faced censorship pressure for over 20 years, promoted public access to their work, and how controversial it is. They defend their ability to express their opinions freely, with or without them.

“The economic, racial and political turmoil of our modern moments affects the lives of artists and the work they produce,” said Rachel Birds, Program Director of the Warhol Foundation. “Museums, non-profit galleries and other artist-centric organizations are essential places for artists to incubate, research, develop and discuss projects intertwined with current complexity. We appreciate the excellence that the platform gives to our artistic vision and voice, and we focus on the artist’s point of view in conversations that go far beyond the world of art. “
