Brooklyn-based nonprofit Artadia announced the recipients of its 2018 New York awards: Terence Nance and Jessica Vaughn.

Each award comes with $10,000 in unrestricted funds. Jurors included Zeitz MOCAA’s  assistant curator, Monique Long; artist Lorna Simpson; Jamie Stevens, the curator of Artists Space; and Carmen Hermo, the assistant curator of the Sackler Center for Feminist Art at the Brooklyn Museum.

Stevens said of the recipients, “Jessica Vaughn’s work stood out for its ability to probe large questions about public space and the world of work with intense focus and economy. Terence Nance, on the other hand, is restless and remorselessly energetic in approach but undertakes a similarly critical unlayering of how infrastructures we all depend upon can, both deliberately and unwittingly, re-materialize flawed and violent value systems.”
