Roy R. Neuberger Prize Awarded to Yto Barrada

Moroccan-French multi-media artist Yto Barrada received the 2019 Roy R. Neuberger Prize honoring living artists who embody outstanding artistic achievement.

Selected by a distinguished advisory panel, Barrada received a cash honorarium of $25,000. A catalogue and exhibition of the artist’s work, Yto Barrada: The Dye Garden, made its U.S. debut at the Neuberger in the fall. The biennial Prize reflects the historical mission of Roy R. Neuberger, the Museum’s founding patron. Neuberger’s son, Jim, and daughter-in-law Helen Stambler Neuberger, carry on that legacy today; both remain actively involved with the Museum and serve on the Board of the Friends of the Neuberger Museum of Art.
