Independent Curators International announced today that Eva Barois de Caevel, the assistant curator of Raw Material Company in Dakar, Senegal, and cofounder of Cartel de Kunst, “an international collective of emerging curators,” has been named the 2014 winner of its Independent Vision Curator Award, which supports “international curators early in their careers who have shown exceptional creativity and prescience in their exhibition-making, research, and related writing.”

The prize, which comes with a $3,000 stipend toward a new project, is given every other year. Nancy Spector, the Guggenheim’s deputy director and chief curator, served as the juror this year.

“Eva Barois de Caevel’s unflinching curatorial practice tackles some of today’s most urgent issues, including sexuality and human rights, in a postcolonial world,” Spector said in a statement released to press. “Working collaboratively to encourage dialogue and participation among her audiences, with issues both local and global, she is courageously expanding the curatorial field.”
