The Rema Hort Mann Foundation has named the 2014 winners of its $10,000 unrestricted emerging artist grants in New York. The grantees, many of whom will be familiar to regular gallery-goers in the city, are:
Maia Cruz Palileo
The foundation, which has a long track record of providing early support to major contemporary artists (prior recipients include Sanford Biggers in 2001 and Dana Schutz in 2002), also awards annual grants to Los Angeles-area artists.
If you’re in the mood to see some work by those artists in their home right now, Cara Benedetto has a show at the Lower East Side’s Chapter NY gallery, and Abigail DeVille has an incredible kinetic sculpture (don’t want to give away more than that) in the basement of SculptureCenter’s recently opened “Puddle, pothole, portal” exhibition over in Long Island City.
