Season 16 (2019/20) Manifest Grand Jury Prize

This Grand Jury Prize will consider works exhibited at Manifest from late
September 2019 through mid-September 2020.

 

 

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 16 MANIFEST GRAND JURY PRIZE

  • The works shown below represent the highest ranking artworks out of roughly 9,500 separate works submitted for consideration across 33 exhibits, including 27 group and 6 solo exhibitions during our 16th season. (This excludes any exhibit that could not be presented due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and 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 as many as 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 eligible 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 16 Grand Jury Prize features a pool of 53 works by 50 artists, representing 33 different exhibitions. The exhibits presented a total of 471 works by 336 artists in 43 states and 7 countries. Details on the exhibitions, and all of season 16, 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 or early 2022.

  • 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. Images are provided in chronological order based on the date of exhibition.

  Season Funder:

Manifest's 17th season is funded in part by a grant from the Charles Moerlein Foundation, Fifth Third Bank, Trustee. This season's programming is also supported by the generosity of tens of thousands of contributors to the ArtsWave Community Campaign, by a sustainability grant from the Ohio Arts Council, and through the generous direct contributions of individual supporters and private foundations who care deeply about the visual arts.
