The 2019 Roy R. Neuberger Prize

UPCOMING EXHIBITION:  September 25-December 22, 2019

The Neuberger Museum of Art’s founding patron, Roy R. Neuberger, made it his life’s mission to support the work of living artists.  In that spirit, the prestigious Roy R. Neuberger Prize is awarded biannually to a living artist whose artistic practice contributes not only to how we see and experience art, but also how we consider pressing contemporary global issues. The Prize winner is selected from a slate of international artists, nominated by a cross-disciplinary panel of former Prize winners, Neuberger Museum of Art curators and educators, and Purchase College, SUNY, makers and scholars. The Prize consists of a unique exhibition project and, beginning with our 2019 winner, a cash prize of $25,000. 

Originated and first supported by Roy R. Neuberger, the prize now continues to be generously supported by Jim Neuberger and Helen Stambler Neuberger. Previous recipients of the Prize include Cuban installation and performance artist Tania Bruguera, American figurative painter Dana Schutz, South African video and performance artist Robin Rhode, and Argentine installation artist Leandro Erlich. 

The recipient of the 2019 Prize will be announced soon.
