ARTIST GRANTS

Designed to support the work of visual artists during the first decade of their careers, the Liu Shiming Artist Grants support the creation or completion of new projects that explore the interplay between traditional cultural or historical influences and contemporary artistic practice. Each year, up to five artists will be selected to receive a $5,000 grant.

 

Visual artists who have been working for at least two years (but not more than 10 years) are invited to apply for a grant in support of a current or new project. Final awardees will be chosen by a distinguished panel consisting of the Foundation’s Curatorial Director, an established artist, and accomplished representatives from a cross section of the art world.

In 2023, the Liu Shiming Art Foundation awarded its first Artist Grants to a diverse group of emerging artists whose work examines a wide range of topics including the exploration of Black Identity, the impact of photography on everyday life, the influence of New York City’s architecture on human behavior, and the intersection between indigenous African culture and contemporary realities.
