Artist Awards for Pantea Karimi

Pantea Karimi is the recipient of the two prestigious awards in 2022. Pantea receive the Pollock-Krasner Foundation Artist Grant, which will fund her 2022 art projects. Pollock-Krasner grants have enabled artists to create new work, purchase needed materials and pay for studio rent, as well as their personal expenses. Past recipients of Pollock-Krasner grants acknowledge their critical impact in allowing concentrated time for studio work, and in preparing for exhibitions and other professional opportunities such as accepting a residency. Her applications were juried by the Mass MoCA Curators and esteemed artists, and a distinguished committee of art professionals at the Pollock Krasner Foundation. 

Pantea also received a four-week artist residency award with the Studios at Mass MoCA in North Adams, Massachusetts. She will start her residency from May 11th through June 7th, 2022. Upon her return to California in June, she will present her UCSF Library art residency project and her latest works at the Substantial Motion Research Network symposium, A Light Footprint in the Cosmos, at Simon Fraser University, BC, Canada.
