Pollock-Krasner Foundation Announces $2.7 Million in Grants

The Pollock-Krasner Foundation revealed that it would award grants totaling nearly $2.7 million to ninety-three artists and nonprofit organizations around the world. The recipients represent fifteen countries and fourteen states and territories. The grants are meant to provide artists and organizations with professional support, enabling them to create new work, purchase materials, rent studio space, prepare for and mount exhibitions, and attend residencies. Funds may also be used to offset living expenses.

The 2022–23 Lee Krasner Award for lifetime achievement this year went to Oakland, California–based painter, sculptor, printmaker, and draftsman Oliver Lee Jackson. The St. Louis native is being honored for his innovative work, which treads the line between figuration and abstraction, as well as for his support of African American artists over his six-decade career. Jackson has taught art, philosophy, and Pan-African Humanities at St. Louis Community College, Southern Illinois University, Washington University in St. Louis, Oberlin College, and California State University, Sacramento.

Pakistani American artist Shahzia Sikander earlier this year was announced as the recipient of the 2023 Pollock Prize for Creativity for her multimedia exhibition “Havah…to breathe, air, life.” Exploring issues of women and justice, the exhibition appeared this past spring at Madison Square Park in New York before traveling to Houston in June. Brooklyn-based artist María Elena González received both a Pollock-Krasner Foundation grant and the Brian Wall Foundation Grant for Sculptors. The $25,000 prize recognizes an exceptional sculptor and is awarded by the Brian Wall Foundation and administered by the Pollock-Krasner Foundation.

The organization annually provides funding to organizations that engage directly with artists. Among this year’s recipients are New York’s ArtTable, in aid of its Artist Talk Series; the Buffalo AKG Art Museum, in support of PKF grantee Stanley Whitney’s retrospective monograph; Laguarres, Spain’s Villa Bergerie, for residency program expenses; and Bronx, New York’s Wave Hill, in support of artist residency and exhibition expenses.
