Contemporary Artists Donate Works to 2013 Tribeca Film Festival Artists Awards Program

The 2013 Tribeca Film Festival (TFF), presented by American Express, today announced the participants of the 2013 Tribeca Film Festival Artists Awards Program, sponsored by CHANEL. Twelve contemporary artists, including Stephen Hannock, David Kratz, Curtis Kulig, Gillian Laub, Robert Longo, Angelina Nasso, Erik Parker, Jose Parla, Joyce Pensato, Clifford Ross, William Wegman and Dustin Yellin will donate their artwork to be presented to the filmmakers whose films are selected by the TFF jury as winners in their respective categories. The Tribeca Film Festival Artists Awards Program was created by TFF co-founder Jane Rosenthal to celebrate New York artists. This year's TFF will run April 17-28, 2013.

The work will be exhibited free and open to the public April 3rd - 24th, between the hours of 11am- 7pm, at the New York Academy of Art, 111 Franklin Street, Manhattan. New Yorkers and festival-goers alike will be able to view the works before they are presented at the Tribeca Film Festival Awards Ceremony on the evening of April 25.

"These awards are a unique Tribeca tradition," said Jane Rosenthal, co-founder, TFF. "The Festival has always been about artists supporting one another, no matter what their medium is. Along with Chanel, we are thrilled to be able to honor our prize winning filmmakers with some of the finest art work that is being created."
