The Frieze Impact Prize is a new award to recognize artists’ role in the movement to end mass incarceration in the U.S. The prize seeks to lift up artwork that highlights the inequitable aspects of the criminal justice system and challenges its racial bias. Special consideration will be given to work by justice-involved artists. If there is anyone you know who may be a candidate, please share this announcement with them.
The Prize will award $25,000 to an artist 18 years or older for an existing work of art that can contribute to the movement to end mass incarceration. Artists may apply online until Friday, July 3 at 5pm EST. For more information, please check out the FAQs or contact meredith.reed at frieze.com
