Season 15 (2018/19) Manifest Grand Jury Prize

This Grand Jury Prize will consider works exhibited at Manifest from late
September 2018 through mid-September 2019.

 

 

Starting with our 13th season, Manifest launched a new annual cash award of $2500. The Annual Manifest Grand Jury Prize is a seasonal capstone distinction awarded to one work from among the hundreds exhibited on-site at the gallery across the season.

DETAILS OF THE $2,500 SEASON 15 MANIFEST GRAND JURY PRIZE

  • The works shown below represent the highest ranking artworks out of roughly 8,200 separate works submitted for consideration across 23 group and 9 solo exhibitions during our 15th season. (This excludes the Manifest Prize winner/exhibitor. The Manifest Prize is a separate cash award process and solo exhibit.)

  • The Manifest Grand Jury Prize will be re-juried by the same jurors who served across the season, excluding any who may have a conflict of interest. When concluded this will result in 20-30 individuals having scored the works shown below in an effort to determine the winner. The detailed history, jury process, and rationale for the Grand Jury Prize can be found here.
  • At least one work per exhibition is included as a finalist for consideration. Solo exhibitors are invited to select their preferred work from their exhibition for jury, or may defer to the Director's choice.

  • This Season 15 Grand Jury Prize features a pool of 49 works by 48 artists, representing 32 different exhibitions. The exhibits presented 526 works by 332 artists in 41 states and 8 countries. Details on the exhibitions, and all of season 15, can found at this link. The entire season, and all works shown, will be documented in the forthcoming Manifest Exhibition Annual publication planned for tentative release in late 2021.

  • We have made this page available so the artists and the public are aware of the contenders, and to serve as a recognition of these artists' works for having received high scores from their respective juries, which given the severity of the competition is an achievement worthy of mention.

  • Thumbnails below may be clicked to see the full image. Videos are linked and viewable online. Images are provided in chronological order based on the date of exhibition.
