FLATTPRIZE, National Arts Club, UNTITLED Art Fair
Founded in 2010, FLATT is a philanthropic arts platform that sponsors and celebrates creativity across all disciplines, including science, the visual arts, film, dance, performance, music, writing, and poetry. In addition to its quarterly eponymous print magazine, whose subjects range from Susan Sarandon, Cher and Bruce Weber to Mickalene Thomas and The Metropolitan Opera, FLATT recognizes talent, authenticity, and the rigor that drives the creative process by awarding an annual FLATTPRIZE.
FLATTPRIZE is proud to announce a new partnership with the National Arts Club and Untitled Art Fair, which will award an artist an unparalleled six-month, live-in residency at the National Arts Club in New York City starting in February 2014. Working closely with UNTITLED Director Omar Lopez-Chahoud, an esteemed panel of judges that includes EL Museo del Barrio curator Chus Martinez, Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago curator Naomi Beckwith, MoMA curator Christian Rattemeyer, and representatives from FLATT and the National Arts Club, the FLATTPRIZE honoree will be chosen from applications submitted by this year's selection of galleries showing at UNTITLED during Art Basel Miami Beach.
Pioneered by FLATT Founder and Editor-In-Chief, Christina Lessa, FLATT Publisher and Philanthropist, Andrew Martin-Weber, and Former National Arts Club President and current Director of Arts and Humanities, Dianne Bernhard, the award will also provide a $1,500 supply stipend, meal service, and full club privileges. FLATT will be working closely with the artist, several top curators, and the National Arts Club to provide the winner with a full mentorship experience during their stay.
