We don’t envy the jury tasked with deciding the winner of this year’s Smithsonian American Art Museum contemporary artist award. The field of 15 nominees, announced this week, is broad and deep: Matthew Buckingham, Kathy Butterly, Christina Fernandez, Futurefarmers founder Amy Franceschini, Rachel Harrison, Oliver Herring, Glenn Kaino, Sowon Kwon, Ruben Ortiz-Torres, Jaime Permuth, Will Ryman, Ryan Trecartin, Rhizome founder Mark Tribe, Mary Simpson, and Sara VanDerBeek. Established in 2001 as the Lucelia Artist Award, the $25,000 prize recognizes an artist younger than 50 “who has produced a significant body of work and consistently demonstrates exceptional creativity.” Past winners include Pierre Huyghe, Jessica Stockholder, Andrea Zittel, and Jorge Pardo. A panel of five jurors nominated the artists and will determine the award winner in a day of discussion and review. The names of the jurors will be revealed in October when the winner is announced.
