U. S. ART CRITICS ASSOCIATION (AICA-USA) ANNOUNCES AWARD CEREMONY

For the first time, the awards will be presented by former AICA honorees, including Shirin Neshat, Martin Puryear, Christo and Linda Nochlin, and the ceremony will include video performances by Kimsooja and William Kentridge. Many artists, including Marina Abramović and Cai Guo-Qiang, will accompany the curators of their shows as they accept their awards in person. Elizabeth C.

‘Their awards may not have the glitz of Rob Pruitt’s Art Awards, but the U.S. chapter of the International Association of Art Critics (AICA) has stamina. It has presented annual prizes for over 25 years. . . . While Pruitt’s awards celebrate art-world personalities, AICA focuses on exhibitions.’

The 26 winners of first and second places in twelve categories, selected from over one hundred finalists, include exhibitions focusing on the contemporary artists Marina Abramović, Tino Sehgal and Cai Guo-Qiang, the mid 20th century artists Arshile Gorky and Yves Klein and the 19th-century and early 20th century masters Henri Matisse, Otto Dix and Claude Monet. Honors will also go to thematic exhibitions dealing with the presence of women artists in Pop art, the history of performance art, and the Bauhaus.
‘This year’s AICA Awards reflect a truly national, as well as an international character of the artistic scene in the United States. We are very pleased that our members have acknowledged dynamic versatility of our artistic scene in such a spectacular fashion,’ says AICA-USA’s President Marek Bartelik. Eleanor Heartney, Chair of the Nominating Committee, stressed this year’s wide range of winning institutions, from major museums to small not for profits and innovative spaces.
After learning that ‘Leon Golub: Live & Die Like a Lion?’ had been named Best Show in a Non-Profit Gallery or Space, Brett Littman, the executive director of The Drawing Center, who curated the show, said: ‘It is a tremendous honor for The Drawing Center to be recognized for the excellence of our programming by AICA for the third year in a row…I am very proud that The Drawing Center can develop intelligent and impactful exhibitions that garner the accolades of our peers.’
Here’s how Deborah Landau, President of Madison Square Park Conservancy, responded to the news that ‘Antony Gormley: Event Horizon,’ which she organized, had won a prize in Best Project in a Public Space: ‘We are so honored to join the ranks of such prestigious institutions as the Museum of Modern Art, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, the Hirshhorn Museum, and the Institute of Contemporary Art in receiving AICA–USA’s award. We share this honor with Antony Gormley, an artist of such extraordinary vision that he caused everyday New Yorkers to stop, look around them and experience New York and its architectural treasures and skyline in a totally new way.’
Tania Bruguera, whose exhibition at Neuberger Museum of Art won second place for Best Show in a University Gallery, commented on the award’s significance for her ongoing work: ‘Receiving the AICA Award encourages me to continue with great enthusiasm a new project, Immigrant Movement International, which will last a whole year.’
This year’s awards will be presented by a distinguished group of current AICA members and former AICA honorees, including the artists Shirin Neshat, Christo, and Martin Puryear; the critic Peter Plagens; and the curators Connie Butler and Eugenie Tsai. Linda Nochlin, the Lila Acheson Wallace Professor of Modern Art at the Institute of Fine Arts/New York University, will present a lifetime achievement award for Distinguished Contribution to the Field of Criticism to Elizabeth C. Baker. There will also be a live artistic component to the evening: a video by William Kentridge and a light-and-sound piece by Kimsooja. Eleanor Heartney and Marek Bartelik will serve as emcees.
This year’s Nominating Committee included: Eleanor Heartney (Chair), Marek Bartelik (AICA-USA President), Rachel Wolff (AICA-USA Vice-President), Barbara MacAdam (AICA-USA Board), Debra B. Balken, Michael Duncan, and Jeanne Claire van Ryzin.
