Associate Professor of Theater Arts Charlotte Brathwaite Awarded 2020 Art Matters Grant

Art Matters Announces 2020 Grant Recipients

New York–based nonprofit Art Matters today announced 37 recipients of its 2020 grants. Each will be awarded a fellowship of $5,000. The grants are awarded annually to artists or collectives working in contemporary art or performance. Among the first-time grantees this year are collective #XMAP: In Plain Sight; stage director Charlotte Brathwaite; performer and video artist Jibz Cameron, aka Dynasty Handbag; and filmmaker Shikeith. Repeat grant winners include photographer Sergio De La Torre, choreographer and movement artist Eiko Otake, and participatory artist Dread Scott.

Art Matters’ selection process this year was influenced by the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic and by the Black Lives Matter protests that swept the globe this summer, and eschewed application labor on the part of the artists. In keeping with the nonprofit’s mission, this year’s grantees represent QTBIPOC people (queer/trans/Black/Indigenous/people of color), incarcerated and undocumented populations, and those who are immunocompromised and/or disabled, as well as healers and activists.
