Tracy Fitzpatrick, Director of the Neuberger Museum of Art, announced that the Museum’s 2019 Roy R. Neuberger Prize, now carrying an honorarium of $25,000, has been awarded to Yto Barrada, an internationally-acclaimed French-Moroccan multi-media artist. In addition to the cash award, an exhibition of her work Yto Barrada: The Dye Garden, will be on view for the first time in the US at the Neuberger Museum of Art, September 25–December 22, 2019.
Yto Barrada: The Dye Garden originated at the American Academy in Rome. This presentation of the exhibition was co-organized by the Neuberger Museum of Art and the American Academy in Rome. The exhibition is co-curated by Peter Benson Miller, Andrew Heiskell Arts Director at the American Academy and Helaine Posner, Chief Curator at the Neuberger Museum.
The biennial Neuberger Prize reflects the historical mission of Roy R. Neuberger, the Museum’s founding patron, who had a lifelong commitment to supporting the work of living artists. His son, Jim Neuberger and his wife Helen Stambler Neuberger, who are actively involved in the Museum’s Board of Directors, carry on that legacy today.
Ms. Barrada was selected from a long list of candidates nominated by the Roy R. Neuberger Prize Advisory Panel, consisting of the museum’s director and curators, and various faculty at Purchase College. Prior prizewinners are Tania Bruguera, Leandro Erlich, Robin Rhode, and Dana Schutz.
“The support of innovative, international art and artists is a major institutional priority and the Neuberger Prize significantly advances this mission,” notes Dr. Fitzpatrick.
