In late 1962, John Cage, Jasper Johns, and Robert Rauschenberg decided to help Merce Cunningham finance a season on Broadway.

Bob and I said that we would help, that we would each give a painting to be sold to help cover the loss that a Broadway “season” would incur, and Cage said that he had a Richard Lippold sculpture, a work in five parts, that he would contribute. Cage and I estimated the value of these three works and it seemed a bit more than Merce’s season would require. I asked him what we should do with the extra money, perhaps a couple thousand dollars, and Merce said, “Help others, because we’re all in the same boat.” But it wasn’t enough, really, and I said why not invite other artists to join us and give works, and then we’ll be able to help others. That’s how it started. –Jasper Johns, Co-Founder of the Foundation for Contemporary Arts

ABOUT THE FOUNDATION FOR CONTEMPORARY ARTS

Grants and Awards Programs

MISSION

Every FCA grant is determined by a panel of artists, offering grantees both vital financial assistance and the inestimable encouragement that comes with recognition by their peers.

FCA’s mission is to encourage, sponsor, and promote innovative work in the arts created and presented by individuals, groups, and organizations. FCA depends on artists to fund its programs; to date, over 1,000 artists have contributed paintings, sculptures, drawings, prints, photographs, performances, and videos to help fund grant programs that directly support individual artists working in dance, music/sound, performance art/theater, poetry, and the visual arts. Thus, FCA is the only institution of its kind: created and sustained by artists to benefit artists. HISTORY

By the early 1960s, some emerging visual artists were beginning to experience modest financial success while many of their peers working in dance, music, and theater struggled against severely limited funding options to present their work. John Cage (1912-1992), Jasper Johns, and a few friends decided to organize a benefit exhibition to support their colleagues in the performance arts. Lee Bontecou, Elaine de Kooning, Willem de Kooning, Marcel Duchamp, Alex Katz, Ellsworth Kelly, Roy Lichtenstein, Marisol, Robert Morris, Barnett Newman, Claes Oldenburg, Robert Rauschenberg, James Rosenquist, Frank Stella, Elaine Sturtevant, and Andy Warhol were among the sixty-seven artists who contributed to this landmark show at the Allan Stone Gallery, a prominent contemporary gallery of the period. With proceeds from the exhibition, the Foundation began making grants to individual artists. During its first year, FCA made grants to composers Earle Brown and Morton Feldman, and underwrote a concert of their music at Town Hall in New York. Other early grantees include choreographers Trisha Brown, Lucinda Childs, Meredith Monk, Yvonne Rainer, and Twyla Tharp; composers Philip Glass, Steve Reich, and La Monte Young; and organizations such as Judson Memorial Church. FCA has operated continuously since the 1960s. Artists are primarily responsible for the Foundation’s existence, its growth, and its continuation. To date, FCA has held sixteen benefit exhibitions at various New York City galleries. In total, these exhibitions have included over 2,000 artworks contributed by artists and have raised over $11 million to support FCA’s programs. In recent years, financial contributions from individuals and foundations have significantly enhanced FCA’s ability to support innovative work in the arts. Since 1963, more than 3,100 grants to artists and arts organizations—totaling over $16 million—have provided opportunities for creative exploration and the realization of new work. 4

GRANTS TO ARTISTS

These unrestricted cash awards are intended to provide recipients with the financial means to engage in any artistic endeavors they wish to pursue. Recipients are chosen annually through a confidential nomination and selection process. Each year, artists and arts professionals invited by FCA propose one artist, collective, or performing group whom they believe would benefit from an award. These confidential submissions are then reviewed by an advisory panel of artists, arts professionals, and FCA’s Board of Directors. The recipients are determined on the basis of the merit and imaginativeness of their work and the impact such recognition and support might have at this point in their careers. The number of selections made in any of the five fields is determined by the strength of the candidates as well as FCA’s resources that year. Endowed Awards THE MERCE CUNNINGHAM AWARD. This

endowed biennial award was established in 2015 with a gift from the Merce Cunningham Trust in memory of the choreographer. THE ROY LICHTENSTEIN AWARD. This

endowed award was established in 2018 with a gift from The Roy Lichtenstein Foundation in memory of the artist.

THE ROBERT RAUSCHENBERG AWARD. This

endowed award was established in 2013 with a gift from the Robert Rauschenberg Foundation in memory of the artist. THE DOROTHEA TANNING AWARD. This endowed award was established in 2017 with a gift from The Destina Foundation in memory of the artist and poet. THE C.D. WRIGHT AWARD FOR POETRY. This

endowed award was established in 2018 with a gift from Ellsworth Kelly and Jack Shear in memory of the poet and 1999 Grants to Artists recipient. It is made to a poet over the age of 50.

Funded Awards THE HELEN FRANKENTHALER AWARD FOR PAINTING. This award was established in 2020 and is supported by a multi-year gift from the Helen Frankenthaler Foundation in memory of the artist.

THE ELLSWORTH KELLY AWARD

This award was established in 2016 with an endowment gift from the Ellsworth Kelly Foundation in memory of the artist. It is made annually to create a solo exhibition opportunity for a contemporary visual artist at a U.S. art museum or university or college art gallery. The 2019 award was $40,000. EMERGENCY GRANTS

FCA Grants Reception, The Kitchen, New York, 2019. Presenters: 2011 Grantee Ryan McNamara (right) and ASL Interpreter Josh Garrett (left).

FCA FRIENDS. One Grants to Artists award each year is supported by the membership contributions of these forty arts patrons.

The remaining Grants to Artists awards are funded by over 1,000 artists who have contributed artworks to the Foundation since 1963, as well as individual supporters. The 2020 Grants to Artists awards are $40,000 each; the eighteen recipients are profiled in this booklet. The Directors of FCA were joined in the grant selection process by art historian and author Bettina Funcke; musician Jenny Lin; Curator at The Kitchen Matthew Lyons; and playwright, director, and New York City Players Artistic Director Richard Maxwell. Advising the selection committee on the Poetry category were poet and writer David Henderson and poet Ann Lauterbach. THE JOHN CAGE AWARD

This endowed biennial award was established in 1992 by the Foundation’s Board in memory of the late composer, one of FCA’s founders and a Director of the organization until his death. This unrestricted award is given in recognition of outstanding achievement in the arts. Selections are made from invited nominations. The 2020 award is $40,000. 6

These by-application grants are awarded on an ongoing basis to artists and collectives throughout the country who are in need of timely, urgent funding. The only program of its kind, Emergency Grants provides quick, grassroots support to artists who have unexpected expenses when projects are close to completion or sudden opportunities to present work to the public. Emergency Grants typically range from $500 to $2,500; requests are reviewed monthly by a panel of established artists. The 2019 Emergency Grants were supported in part by grants from: The Amphion Foundation; Milton & Sally Avery Arts Foundation; John Baldessari Family Foundation, Inc.; Lawrence B. Benenson; The Aaron Copland Fund for Music; The Cowles Charitable Trust; Mertz Gilmore Foundation; Horace W. Goldsmith Foundation; New York City Council District 33/Council Member Stephen Levin; Louisa Stude Sarofim/The Brown Foundation of Houston Inc.; David and Sylvia Teitelbaum Fund, Inc.; and Trust for Mutual Understanding. This program is also supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, in partnership with the City Council. CONTEMPORARY VISUAL ARTS SCHOLARSHIP

FCA administers an annual scholarship program for college-bound seniors from the Housatonic Valley Regional High School for undergraduate study in the Fine Arts, with funds contributed by a Connecticut foundation. One student per academic year is selected to receive $40,000 toward a four-year college degree, disbursed in annual payments of $10,000. Selection is based on talent and financial need. The 2019 selection committee included visual artists Julian Lethbridge and Mickalene Thomas. 2019 GRANT MAKING

Foundation for Contemporary Arts distributed $1,105,000 in 2019. Eighteen Grants to Artists awards of $40,000 each, including the Merce Cunningham Award, Roy Lichtenstein Award, Robert Rauschenberg Award, Cy Twombly Award for Poetry, C.D. Wright Award for Poetry, and Dorothea Tanning Award, were made—a total of $720,000. In addition, a $40,000 Ellsworth Kelly Award was made; $300,000 was disbursed for 179 Emergency Grants; and $45,000 was awarded in Contemporary Visual Arts Scholarships. 7


GENGHIS CHAN ON DRUMS John Yau

In 1999, an annual series of commissioned writings on contemporary art to be published in these pages was inaugurated. The following essay continues this tradition.

1. Once you were a crescendo, a cascade, a sarabande hacked haiku coughing up blood and spitting on moon with no dance to cry over spilled sludge Once your name was John Chinaman You lived in a cricket ding-dong on outskirts of mills and malls in granted state of Marshmallow Falls You said, call me Johnny Jodpurs or Lenny Systematic Suave Stymie or Hamburger Harmonica You said, listen to my thunderstorm and fire worm while you perambulate squeal and stamp indissoluble You said, I am a picket fence, a rumor, a superlative immigrant, a turboprop laxative You said, pickax, influenza, rum, and tuxedo twang This is the placard above my rickshaw chariot moon chaser swoop

2. Once you were an egret tired of all regrets sticking to you like white feathers You thought you were a mirage, a whisper, a lone lover standing on one leg a bush or shrub gleaned in shimmering distance. You began to dream that you saw what you were dreaming in front of you as you looked down from airplane window remembering the dog sitting beside your desk two boys burning a rat for fun a bank robbery in progress, and the song of a young girl who lived beside her dead parents–another body lives inside my dilapidated husk, another intruder longing to leave me standing by the water’s blue and pink edge wondering why I can no longer see my face when I look down into the water

3. Once you were a makeshift bamboo pontoon bride, a cleaver man a phonograph of someone lost in an eddy that no one heard a dirty look pushed through a window a young girl standing on a stoop listening to her father spout clichĂŠs as if they were precious nuggets to be handed down from one military attachĂŠ to another Winter came and stayed You were scheduled to make a speech until you saw a ghost had entered the auditorium and was sitting in the front row smiling, your throat a furnace where the words bloomed in flames a lamp of unstable considerations pressing its muddy towel against your bleeding gums

4. Once you were human but then you forgot to put in for overtime The weather grew hungry but you were not in the mood and decided that being ignorant was a sign of how savvy you were at not being fooled by those who talked down from the sky or wherever they sat when they were not shitting on others besides you there were many tragic cuckoos indebted to their illnesses standing at the end of the street waiting to drift into the creviced sun’s bright red scar Once you were a greasy river cut off from dreams and hundreds of fish floated on your back their bellies swollen and their heads stinking and you said a hundred years from now this watch that I am looking at will still be telling time even though it lies on the muddy bottom, a lone lantern pointing to the stars Once you were a wall pockmarked with bullet holes astonished that anyone would look at you and not vomit but that was before the future arrived, an unexpected guest.

John Yau is a poet, fiction writer, art critic, and freelance curator. Ghengis Chan on Drums is the title poem from his next book of poetry, scheduled for release in the fall of 2021. Yau received a Grants to Artists award in 2002.

I strive to create work that breaks down boundaries between disciplines, an art that in turn becomes a metaphor for opening up thought, perception, and experience. An art that is inclusive, rather than exclusive; that is expansive, human, and multidimensional.

THE JOHN CAGE AWARD

Meredith Monk Born 1942, New York, NY Lives in New York, NY

An art that cleanses the senses, that offers insight, feeling, and magic. That allows the public to perhaps see familiar things in a new, fresh way—that gives them the possibility of feeling more alive.

Composer, Performer, Interdisciplinary Artist

An art that seeks to reestablish the unity existing in music, theater and dance— the wholeness that is found in cultures where performing arts practice is considered a spiritual discipline with healing and transformative power—an antidote in a world with so much distraction and destruction. 1964 B.A., Sarah Lawrence College Founder and Artistic Director, The House Foundation for the Arts 2020 Fromm Foundation Visiting Lecturer on Music, Harvard University Selected Works and Performances 2018 Cellular Songs, premiered at Brooklyn Academy of Music, New York, NY; also performed at Walker Art Center, Minneapolis, MN; Center for the Art of Performance, University of California, Los Angeles, CA; Stanford Live, Stanford University, Stanford, CA 2008 Songs of Ascension, premiered at REDCAT, Los Angeles, CA; also performed at Walker Arts Center, Minneapolis, MN; Stanford University, Stanford, CA; Krannert Center for the Performing Arts, University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, IL; Brooklyn Academy of Music, Brooklyn, NY 1991 ATLAS: an opera in three parts, premiered at The Houston Grand Opera, Houston, TX; also performed at Wexner Center for the Arts, Columbus, OH; the American Music Theater Festival, Hebbel Theater, Berlin, Germany; Brooklyn Academy of Music, Brooklyn, NY 1988 Book of Days, premiered at New York Film Festival, New York, NY; also screened in the Whitney Biennial, Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, NY 1976 Quarry: an opera in three movements, premiered at La MaMa E.T.C., New York, NY; also performed at Brooklyn Academy of Music,

Brooklyn, NY; Venice Biennale, Venice, Italy; John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, Washington, D.C.; Spoleto Festival, Charleston, SC 1972 Education of the Girlchild: an opera, premiered at Common Ground Theater, New York, NY; also performed at Cathedral of Saint John the Divine, New York, NY; Brooklyn Academy of Music, Brooklyn, NY; Joyce Theater, New York, NY

An art that reaches toward emotion we have no words for and that we barely remember—an art that affirms the world of feeling in a time and society where feeling and direct experiences are in danger of being eliminated. An art that represents a template of possibility for human behavior.

1969 Juice: a theater cantata in three installments, premiered at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York, NY; also performed at The House Foundation Loft, New York, NY 1966 16 Millimeter Earrings, premiered at Judson Church, New York, NY Selected Grants, Honors, and Awards 2017 The Dorothy and Lillian Gish Prize 2015 National Medal of Arts 1995 MacArthur Foundation, MacArthur Fellowship 1991 Foundation for Contemporary Performance Arts grant for Atlas 1990 Foundation for Contemporary Performance Arts grant for Book of Days 1983 Foundation for Contemporary Performance Arts grant for Turtle Dreams 1969 Foundation for Contemporary Performance Arts grant for Juice: A Theatre Cantata in Three Installments

Innovation, Museum Brandhorst, Münich, Germany

2019 Rumeurs et Légendes, with Adele Röder as DAS INSTITUT, Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris, Paris, France

I define my practice as a migration around painting, oscillating between a conceptual analysis of the medium and a devotion to painterly processes. I am interested in the power of the unknown and interrogating the concept of the occult within painting. I do this by the creation of a third body via collaboration, developing multiple ever-becoming bodies via a collective community, and utilizing traditional craft techniques by manipulating their processes with an awareness of contemporaneity. I return constantly to the relationship between painting and subjectivity—a connection that is softened, destabilized, and sometimes parodied in my work. To question the agency of painting and engage with the expanded field of painting, I invite artisanal practices (such as stained glass, paper marbling, Stucco marmo) and collaborative projects into the equation of painting history. My work does not exist in isolation, but rather as objects of exchange and interaction. This is reflected in my collaborative projects DAS INSTITUT (with Adele Röder since 2007) as well as my on-going collaboration KAYA (with Debo Eilers since 2010).

Migrants are on the move, while our Earth is staggering, roiling, and rolling, drunk on human breath. We are living in the middle of the Emergency and some of us will not be able to escape. The seas rise and boil. Brush fires move at a lightning clip. Heavy, sooty swats of Delhi air penetrate masks and decorum, silting lungs with a slow accumulation of poisons—as if our lungs, the breathing tubes, the bellows of our lives, have become a burial pit, the sand thrown in. So, what does the Migrant state? We need open borders everywhere, borders of the mind, of languages. We need to cross over at ports of entry with our dances, tongues, poems, and gods. So, pack your bag for the trip. I invite you to put my poems in an outer pouch, easy to grab and show at Customs. In my words, Sir, there are no vegetable products, no animal residues, no contraband. They are here to wake up essences, dreams, memories; to tell stories of where people come from, and the disputes, struggles, successes they encounter along the way.

Revolutionary Thought: Overhead My idea is not complicated, dear foreigner: Haiti is the center of the universe and Creole the official language for all authorities, United Nations, International Criminal Court, for all kinds of crimes, and NASA as well because, as you surmise, to fight future wars we will need codes that not everybody knows… which is why I am leaving Creole with you: your call: as code language, to explore space. for new commands in war. Dearest Haiti. Great country, center of my head. © Indran Amirthanayagam 2019

I used to lock up my writings along with my cigarettes in a file cabinet so my mother couldn’t see them. I considered poetry a matter of profound embarrassment because not only was it considered cheesy but because I could derive from this supposedly cheesy thing the best kind of feeling from reading and making it, the kind that gave me chills. And I wanted to impart that feeling to others. I was also embarrassed by poetry because it was the truth. And I could hardly bear the truth. So, I used to like to hide in my poetry by disturbing the words and making up words and generally being coy with my meaning. I used to pick up bits of language like a magpie and put them in my notebook and make my poems like a collage with my emotions as the glue. I still do that but what I make with the raw material is more direct and as if infused with the enthusiasm of addressing a person you’re newly in love with, and intending to elicit a response, make them feel pleasure, heal their hurts, give them the gift of the difference of your thought from theirs.

My love for the mishaps when at play with multiple languages is obvious. Even when one questions why I do what I do how dare I, this dance through sound, place, and memory is where I naturally tweet like Tweet. Won’t stop. Oops. Can’t stop. What is not always obvious is my personal questioning of self, of this body my essence wears, of a past and present that is searching. It is how I teach myself the histories of those who may or may not have been the victor. Call it Hip-Hop. Or when a cassette gets chewed up in the player. Or what happens when I question the roux. Like any mess of beans with salt thrown in too quickly, the risk of getting it wrong eventually gets it right. Don’t stress the technique. What and who I am, my origins and ancestries, are always underneath/above the blanket being woven. I respond and explore the sonic, visual, and textual vocabularies I am drawn to. And what I often dream, learn, forget, mourn, celebrate. In search of somewhere, in this stew, I am at home here.

I create choreography that operates inside and outside dance traditions in order to blur the distinction between ‘dance’ and ‘non-dance.’ In particular, I am interested in subverting western dance’s history, tradition, codification, and embedded patriarchy, without creating transgressions. Additionally, my recent works explore the perception of the female dancing body in the so-called neutral spaces of the theaters, galleries, museums, and public contexts. I participate in a long and layered process of inquiry, which continually questions the mode of production from which I work in order to examine how it is embedded in a cultural hierarchy. My process involves developing singular movement languages—in collaboration with my dancers—offering actions, which blur the distinction between dance, behavior, and spectacle. My choreography composites and layers existing, outmoded, and invented dance styles, creating a dance as an act of consumption as well as a mode of production. I use formal restraint in order to give space for performative abandon, by creating choreographic rules and systems which push up against various performative thresholds. Can the embodiment and idolization of virtuosity be pushed so far that it is transformative? I am interested in illuminating deep human expression through highly formalistic and at times abstract choreography, challenging the notion that form and abstraction is devoid of feeling. The dancers’ effort in performing multiple contradicting tasks will give way to new terrain.

I seek to convey through my work the emotional, experiential, and relational dimensions of Sound. As I investigate sound from my primary source and instrument, the voice, I relate in my practice its multilayered, complex, physical realm and its metaphysical essence in order to create works that explore the body; identities; syncretism; magic realism; myths; and connection between people, spaces, and symbols. I intersect and translate this sonic phenomenon via different mediums such as performance, installation, music, electronic media, site-specific projects, and improvisation. My work is oriented to interject, move, and integrate the audience as an active participant in the pieces to bring about transformation in the shared time and space.

I am a student. I study the occurrence of magic and the ineffable cycles and co-occurrence of past, present, and future in all things, beings, and ideas. I believe the infinite formulas for our elevation (of the human consciousness) are within our capacities to be both independent and deeply interconnected. My tools have been choreography, performance, teaching, and cultural creative community organizing. It wasn’t until I joined Urban Bush Women that I discovered how interwoven my roles/life would have to be. It would never suffice for me to be an artist only. Or perhaps being an artist had a much broader definition for someone like me, coming from a cultural and creative lineage of artists who drew no lines between their creativity and their calling in the movement for liberation and justice. My work is also committed to shifting dehumanizing narratives and visioning liberation through art, through the power of imagination. Posing questions like: What might freedom, a reality that elevates culture, life, wisdom, the intangible and the infinite, look like? Can we achieve it? The grit in my aesthetic is my agency—my child’s whisper and command for a more humane, liberated, and compassionate reality.

I compose performance, text, sound, film, and sculpture. These works are abstractions, or illegible revisions, and/or revisitations on themes of the built environment, economies of historical data, and the political utility of the stage. My work is often collaborative with the intent to expand the field of artistic practices in any creative process, and highlight the ethical questions of authorship, finances, and labor. Even in the form of objects, many of these works are performative and corporeal, at times manifesting as constructed items typically used for manual labor, and/or choreographing biological material. I am particularly intrigued by what becomes disrupted through the social act of witnessing and participation.

My body of work explores a meeting point of two opposing personal histories that I term ‘the third place.’ As a Native American adopted by German American parents, I am profiling myself, but interested in the history of those expressions. In my work, I am making landscapes that I can live in through an ongoing definition of contemporary life and art, not about America but from America. I investigate painting as a tool that develops an awareness of visual images and hybrid visualizations through a combination of studio work and nomadic studio practice. Working in multiples, several series of paintings have, over time, developed to be defining works, e.g. Billy Jack Jr. Each work is a discussion on appropriation, borrowed imagery, forms, and styles from art history and pop culture. Nomadic Studio, my ongoing sketchbook practice, considers the constant yonderin’ exploration of subject matters, personal travels, and technique. My work reveals chronicle, myth, and fantasy revealing the historically complex role of the painter as a hybrid cultural sampler.

I engage in art as a daily practice because I believe in the power of singular and collective transformation through creative exercises that can foster criticality. This insistence is informed by traditions of Black, Non-Binary, Queer communities who have and continue to utilize art as a mode of remembering and survival.

We live in an increasingly synthetic world of our own making. In the name of more and faster connection, we are animals that have separated ourselves from the actual world around us. The work I make is highly technical, but it is not about the technology. I am more interested in the application of the technology and how it can bring us closer together, shake us from the synthetic, and offer a genuine experience to every audience member’s consciousness, rather than just watching something “over there.” I am interested in how curating meaningful time-based experiences can lead to more meaningful human-to-human interaction. If theater at its core is humans telling stories about ourselves to each other, then I hope it is in the service of getting better at being human. This is why I make the work that I make. This is also how I try to make the work that I make—with an incredible team of value-aligned recurring collaborators who are interested not just in the work of making experience, but in the vigorous interrogation of what power structures exist in the rooms in which we make and how to systemically try to make change in inequitable systems.

I create sonic experiences, integrated within sculptural objects and architecture, that deepen sensory awareness. I look for opportunities to activate sites and engage audiences. Many projects investigate the transfer of affect through vocal tone and language. Some projects utilize sound for its materiality as palpable, physical energy. Currently, I am exploring how light and sound vibrations effect emotional, neurological, and somatic processing. My goal with every work is to discover new approaches to heighten the perceptual and emotional sensitivities of my viewer.

My collages and works on paper are composed of elements found in stationery and office supply stores, or “materials at hand,” rather than conventional art materials. My favorite tools are the Polaroid camera, photocopy machines, and a good pair of shears; I’ve always been excited by new mediums of expression. Themes of style, fashion, and the commercial male image permeate my work. The challenges of living with HIV don’t overwhelm the work—or my life. It’s just another coin in the pouch. Sometimes it comes out heads; it’s a blessing. Sometimes it comes out tails; it’s a curse. There are a lot of coins in my pouch. Ideas of blackness resonate most profoundly throughout my work. The one thing I have never been able to get around is being black and male in this world. It colors my every dream. My work portrays a range of social, racial, and historical themes and issues involving sexuality, gender, politics, religion, our relationship to “stuff.”

THE ELLSWORTH KELLY AWARD

California College of the Arts Wattis Institute for Contemporary Arts Lydia Ourahmane: ‫ ةيسمش ةخرص‬Solar Cry San Francisco, CA

The Ellsworth Kelly Award is an initiative to support museum exhibitions for contemporary artists. Ellsworth Kelly recognized that a museum exhibition can be transformative for an artist’s career. This eponymous award is intended to provide that opportunity: a $40,000 grant will be administered and made annually by FCA to support a solo exhibition of an emerging, mid-career, or under-recognized artist at a regional U.S. art museum or university or college art gallery. The Ellsworth Kelly Award is endowed by the Ellsworth Kelly Foundation. In spring 2020, the California College of the Arts Wattis Institute for Contemporary Arts (CCA Wattis Institute) will present an exhibition of new work by Algiers-based multidisciplinary artist Lydia Ourahmane, curated by Anthony Huberman, Director and Chief Curator. The 2019 Ellsworth Kelly Award will support the first solo museum exhibition of Ourahmane’s work in the United States, and will feature new work created by the artist since returning to her birthplace of Algeria in 2018. Having explored the politics and trauma of migration in her work in recent years, and particularly the restrictions preventing freedom of movement that are placed on so many from North Africa, Ourahmane considered it imperative to make work “from,” rather than “about,” Algeria. Working in sound, installation, sculpture, text, and performance, Ourahmane’s researchbased practice often incorporates personal history, and reflects on the effects of migration policies on the body, and how the body inhabits space. The CCA Wattis Institute was founded in 1998 at California College of the Arts in San Francisco, and is located a few blocks from campus. A nonprofit exhibition venue and research institute, the CCA Wattis Institute commissions and shows new work by emerging and established artists who take risks and experiment with new ideas that challenge our understanding of contemporary culture. 50
