Since 1998, the Emily Hall Tremaine Foundation has supported contemporary art exhibitions through its biennial Emily Hall Tremaine Exhibition Award. This opportunity provides funding for thematic exhibitions that are fresh and experimental in nature, and for which other funding is not yet forthcoming. The award provides assistance at the beginning stage of the exhibition’s development and offers the curator the support needed to realize the concept.
This year is the first time the Emily Hall Tremaine Foundation will support not only the curator of these winning exhibitions but also the artists that participate through the Living Artist Stipends. When the 2012 Exhibition Award winners, Choreography at the Center for Curatorial Studies, Bard College and Covert Operations: Investigating the Known Unknowns at the Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art, open this fall, each living artist, collaborative, or collective with a piece of existing work in the exhibits will receive a $1,000 stipend. The Foundation developed the Living Artist Stipend to provide financial recognition for work an artist has previously completed that contributed to the curator’s vision.
