The Pollock-Krasner Foundation today announced that it would award grants totaling $3.35 million to 137 artists and nonprofit organizations around the world. The recipients represent seventeen states, Puerto Rico, and fourteen countries. 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.

Since its founding, the New York–based arts nonprofit—established in 1985 by abstract artist Lee Krasner, the widow of Jackson Pollock—has awarded to recipients in seventy-eight countries nearly 5,000 grants totaling $82 million. “As we continue to fulfill Lee Krasner’s vision of supporting working artists internationally, we are proud to provide artists the opportunity to practice and advance their work,” said foundation chair and CEO Ronald D. Spencer in a statement. Spencer also noted that the organization provided funding to the Musée National d’Art Moderne Centre Pompidou for the Women in Abstraction catalogue accompanying its exhibition of the same title, which presented Krasner’s work alongside that of many others. As well, the foundation helped fund the 2022 Whitney Biennial and sculptor Matthew Angelo Harrison’s 2021 exhibition “Proto” at the Kunsthalle Basel.

The organization additionally announced the recipients of this year’s Lee Krasner Awards, given to artists in recognition of their lifetime achievement. Sculptors Rita McBride and Cheryl Ann Thomas were named as first-time recipients of the award, alongside painter Squeak Carnwath, sculptor and installation artist Blane De St. Croix, multimedia artist Laddie John Dill, and conceptual artist Morgan O’Hara, all of whom had already been honored with standard grants. Sculptor Alex Schweder was named the recipient of this year’s $30,000 Brian Wall Foundation Grant for Sculptors, awarded by the Wall Foundation and administered by the Pollock-Krasner Foundation.

The complete list of 2020–21 recipients is below.
