The Rema Hort Mann Foundation has revealed its 2017 list of New York–based emerging artists who will be receiving grants. The artists were selected from a pool of 100 artists, and will now be receiving $10,000 each.

Among this year’s grantees are several artists included in major upcoming group shows. Diamond Stingily, whose work is currently on view at the New Museum, in an exhibition called “Trigger: Gender as a Tool and a Weapon,” will be included in the 2018 New Museum Triennial (that show’s artist list was announced earlier today), and Alison Janae Hamilton and Sable Elyse Smith were both recently named 2018 artists-in-residence at the Studio Museum in Harlem.

The grantees were selected by a jury that included New Museum curator Gary Carrion-Murayari, Rema Hort Mann Foundation cofounder Susan Hort, Columbia University professor David Humphrey, Whitney Museum associate curator Jane Panetta, and White Columns deputy director and curator Erin Somerville.

The list of 2018 grantees is as follows:

  • Allison Janae Hamilton
  • Antone Konst
  • Diamond Stingily
  • Dylan Vandenhoeck
  • Grace Metzler
  • Maia Ruth Lee
  • Matthew Schrader
  • Sable Elyse Smith
