The exhibition will feature several past winners of the nonprofit organization’s unrestricted awards as part of its commitment to continuous support of artists throughout their careers.


The renowned organization Artadia: The Fund for Art & Dialogue celebrates 15 years of support for visual artists with a vibrant show presenting the work of 20 Artadia Awardees at Longhouse Projects in downtown Manhattan. The exhibition is curated by former Swiss Institute director Gianni Jetzer and includes artists from Artadia’s six US program cities:  Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles, San Francisco as well as Artadia NADA Awardees. While the artists work in a large thematic range, they all share a conciseness and singularity in their visions, making them exemplary voices in their communities.

Artist participants include Jillian Conrad (Houston 2012), Meg Cranston (NADA Award 2013), Bill Davenport (Houston 2010), Cayetano Ferrer (Los Angeles 2013), Ryan Foerster (NADA Award 2013), Rachel Hecker (Houston 2006), Stanya Kahn (Los Angeles 2013), Robbie Land (Atlanta 2014), Stephen Lapthisophon (Chicago 2002), Margaret Lee (NADA Award 2012), Nicole Miller (Los Angeles 2013), Helen Mirra (Boston 2007), Ramekon O’Arwisters (San Francisco 2002), Eamon Ore-Giron (San Francisco 2001), Brion Nuda Rosch (San Francisco 2009), Vaughn Elaine Sills (Boston 2007), Deb Sokolow (Chicago 2012), Weston T Teruya (San Francisco 2009), Stephen Tourlentes (Boston 2007), and Kerry Tribe (Los Angeles 2014).

Artadia’s 15th anniversary is a showcase of the vivacity of American contemporary art at the beginning of the 21st century. The exhibited artists are diverse in background, mediums in which they work and stages of their careers and share a dedication to practice and a level of excellence that demonstrates the best of what is being made in the country.
