The award was announced during a special edition of the acclaimed screening series Queer|Art|Film, organized by Hammer and Vanessa Haroutunian, Queer|Art Program Coordinator to recognize the visionary women filmmakers who have influenced Hammer’s prolific career.
Queer|Art|Mentorship has announced its seventh round of Fellows for the 2017-2018 Program cycle. Each Fellow accepted has been paired with an established New York-based artist within their field for a yearlong mentorship. The relationship that develops aims to support the artistic and professional practice of the Fellow, as well as to develop community-wide conversations about what it means to generate and curate queer work in New York City and America. Collectively, those selected represent a snapshot of a new generation of openly queer artists making work today.
