Cambridge artist Kelly Sherman is the winner of the 2006 James and Audrey Foster Prize, the Institute of Contemporary Art announced today. This biennial award recognizing a Boston-area artist of exceptional promise includes a $25,000 prize and an opportunity for the finalists to present their work in an exhibition at the ICA. Kelly Sherman's video and text-based works reveal the dynamics of personal relationships and examine the place of emotion in our often cynical world. Sherman's exhibition, along with work by the three other finalist--Sheila Gallagher, Jane D. Marsching, and Rachel Perry Welty--will be on view at the ICA through March 11, 2007.
The winner was chosen by a distinguished jury including Lisa Corrin, Director of the Williams College Museum of Art in Williamstown, MA; Taylor Davis, artist, associate professor at Massachusetts College of Art, and winner of the 2001 ICA Artist Prize; Billie Tsien, Principal of Tod Williams Billie Tsien and Associates in New York; and Benjamin Weil, Director of Artists Space in New York.
Kelly Sherman's work, along the other ICA prize finalists, will be on display at the ICA's new location through March 11th, 2007.
