Artadia: The Fund for Art & Dialogue, a nonprofit arts organization started by banker Chris Vroom, announced that Sergei Tcherepnin is the winner of this year’s Artadia/NADA Award prize, which is presented to one artist at the NADA Miami Beach each year. It carries with it a $4,000 unrestricted grant.

Tcherepnin has a solo booth with Los Angeles’s Overduin & Co. gallery at the fair, where he is showing wall-hung fabric works outfitted with transducers and strips of metal, which act as speakers when viewers press them together, sending out jagged, funky beats. It’s a really nice booth.

Massimiliano Gioni, the New Museum’s associate director, and Cecilia Alemani, the curator of New York’s High Line Art program, made the selection, and in a statement called Tcherepnin’s work “both formally seductive and playfully engaging.”

Past winners of the prize include Margaret Lee and Ryan Foerster.
