2020 Foundwork Artist Prize for contemporary Artists

Application Deadline:  October 15th 2020

Awarded annually to support outstanding artistic practice, the Foundwork Artist Prize includes an unrestricted $10,000 grant and studio visits with each of the distinguished jurors. The honoree and three short-listed artists are also featured in interviews as part of our Dialogues program. 


  • Foundwork features artists internationally and is available to any practicing artists who would like to introduce their work to curators, gallerists, and other prospective collaborators.
  • Examples of practices welcome on Foundwork include various types of painting, sculpture, drawing, photography, printmaking, digital, video, installation, performance, public art, and social practice, among others.

Application Process:

  • In addition to exhibiting their work, artists can share the types of information you often see on an artist’s own website, including their CV, bio, and artist statement. Artists choose what information they share, so profile content may vary from artist to artist.
  • Artists can also assign different artwork format and descriptive attribute tags to their profiles and works, informing how others can look for them on the platform.

How to Apply

There is no separate application for the Foundwork Artist Prize. In order to be considered, an artist only needs to meet the eligibility criteria, sign up for an artist account, and have a pubished profile on Foundwork, with at least 5 published artworks, throughout the selection period: 5:00 pm ET October 15–5:00 pm ET November 30, 2020.
