New York’s NADA art fair announced that Los Angeles–based artist Josh Mannis has won its Artadia Award this year, which includes a prize of $5,000. His work was on view at Paris’s Galerie Éric Hussenot booth at NADA, which was held at Skylight Clarkson North at 572 Washington Street.
Mannis was chosen for the award by the Hirshhorn Museum’s curator at large, Gianni Jetzer, and the Jewish Museum’s assistant curator Rebecca Shaykin. In a statement, the two jurors noted his “effortless combination of art history tracing an arc from Neue Sachlichkeit to Sinister Pop,” which “is countered by postcard views of American politics. The protagonists of his paintings live in a feverish dream that is fueled by conspiracy and ultimately violence.”
