Silver Art Projects is pleased to welcome 28 artists as part of its 2022-2023 cohort. For its next cohort, the project has recently received funding from the Anti-Racism Fund, Booth Farris Foundation and Christie’s as Silver Art Projects endeavors to expand its support and ambitions for its program.
These artists, who were selected by artworld luminaries Swizz Beatz, Suzy Delvalle, JiaJia Fei, Roxane Gay, Larry Ossei-Mensah, Eugenie Tsai, Jammie Holmes, Tyler Mitchell and Mickalene Thomas, span disciplines and backgrounds and show growth and success in the fields of painting, photography, installation and more. The open call for 2022-2023 saw almost double the number of applications, with over 1,200 submissions.
At Silver Art Projects, the selected artists will be given the opportunity to expand their practice and amplify their work without the impediment of expensive New York City studio space. Selected for their extraordinary artistic excellence, need for the studio space and potential to maximize the opportunity, this year’s participants will each receive 500-1,000 square feet of free studio space at 4 World Trade Center, as well as mentorship, peer-to-peer advising, a financial stipend, career workshops and networking opportunities with leading museum directors, curators and other professionals in the art industry – all with the aim of helping the artists build sustainable, successful long-term art practices.
