On view: September 12 – October 14, 2018
ArtPrize returns to GRAM this year with a diverse array of contemporary art in a broad spectrum of media. The Museum will exhibit the work of eleven artists or artist pairs, hailing from Finland, Ghana, Venezuela, and the United States–including five based in Michigan. The exhibition will include work that takes advantage of GRAM’s dynamic architecture, beyond the gallery spaces alone, including an overhead installation in GRAM’s main lobby and large-scale nighttime projections on the building’s exterior. The exhibition also contains sculpture, painting, and interactive performance and installation works. The works on view tackle the subjects of public and private discourse, community engagement, and urgent social issues including hate crimes and environmental awareness.
GRAM is proud to host three projects which have been awarded ArtPrize Artist Seed Grants. Mark Niskanen and Jani-Matti Salo’s No Names, Lauren Strohacker and Kendra Sollars’ Animal Land, and Saskia Jorda’s Cacerolazo were awarded $2,000 in grants presented by the Frey Foundation.
