Artadia’s Art & Dialogue Series:
In April 2015, Artadia launches Art & Dialogue, a national program designed to expand
support for Awardees. Art & Dialogue was developed through in-depth research of artists’
needs, and will bridge meaningful connections between the artists, curators, and audiences
in Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles and San Francisco. Each Art & Dialogue
program will provide increased visibility to participating Awardees, and the cultural landscape
of the cities where they live and work.
For the 2015 season of Art and Dialogue, Artadia will invite six curators from prominent
institutions across the country to visit each of its Award cities. Each Art & Dialogue program
will consist of three parts: curators will conduct studio visits with Awardees, present a public
program with a local cultural partner, and provide a summary of their experience upon returning
to their home institution. All Art & Dialogue programs will be documented, anthologized on
Artadia’s website, and publicized internationally.
Artadia: The Fund for Art and Dialogue encourages innovative artistic practice and dialogue
across the United States by providing visual artists with unrestricted financial awards, a
national network for professional opportunities, and a lifetime of support for continued artistic
and career development. Since our founding in 1997, Artadia’s programs have cultivated local
and national exposure and critical validation for artists. Over 20,000 artists have applied for
the Artadia Awards program. To date, Artadia has awarded over $3 million to more than 300
artists living and working throughout our Award cities: Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Houston, Los
Angeles and San Francisco and with a national award program with the New Art Dealer’s
Alliance in New York and Miami. The Artadia/NADA award helps bring recognition to artists
who are shown at one of the most visited national art fairs in the world. Artadia is a non-profit
501©(3) organization guided by entrepreneurial principles, community engagement, and a
diverse board of industry leaders, arts patrons and philanthropists from across the country.
