THE TRIBECA FILM FESTIVAL UNVEILS THE 2018 ARTISTS AWARDS PROGRAM PARTICIPANTS

NEW YORK, NY- April 9, 2018 - The Tribeca Film Festival has unveiled the participants for the 2018 Tribeca Film Festival Artists Awards Program, supported by CHANEL. Each year the festival brings together world-class artists who donate a piece of their work which will be presented as an award to honored filmmakers at the 2018 Tribeca Film Festival, presented by AT&T.

Ten contemporary artists were personally selected this year by Tribeca Film Festival and respected New York Gallerist, Sandra Gering. They include: Ghada Amer, Meghan Boody, Nancy Dwyer, Reza Farkhondeh, Stephen Hannock, Eddie Kang, David Levinthal, John F. Simon Jr, Joan Snyder, and Julia Wachtel, The ten artists will contribute nine prizes to Tribeca for the award-winning filmmakers.

The tradition of artists supporting each other goes back to the very beginnings of the Festival when Jane Rosenthal, who co-founded Tribeca, was looking for a way to build new memories for downtown in the wake of September 11. As a creator and storyteller herself, Rosenthal conceived this signature cultural event as a way to help locals and area businesses through the support of the creative community. Studio artists saw the early impact of the Festival as it was forming and wanted to be involved - and the Artists Awards Program was born in year one as a way for artists to directly support and celebrate other artists. The tradition of artists supporting each other has remained a core value of the Tribeca Film Festival and this program is a yearly reminder of that.

The collection will be featured at the Tribeca Festival Hub, at 50 Varick Street, throughout the Festival which runs April 18 - 29. They will be presented to the award-winning filmmakers during the award ceremony on Thursday, April 26.

Following is a complete list of the artwork that will be contributed. Artwork images can be found here: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/zy40h4hdc973kfu/AABiyjnZ3zPREyAPN6DJf4Gga?dl=0.

About the Artists:

Ghada Amer & Reza Farkhondeh

Ghada Amer (American, born Egypt) and Reza Farkhondeh (American, Born Iran) are visual artists and have their own individual and collective practice. When they come together to create work, Amer's quest for empowering women is combined with Farkhondeh's vision of the fragility of our lives and nature. While both artists have their own individual practice, Farkhondeh and Amer welcome as well the status of combined authorship. Their work comments on art, literature and social political life. Ghada Amer studied at Villa Arson, Nice France where she earned an MFA in paintings and Drawings in 1989. Reza Farkhondeh earned a BFA at cole nationale sup rieure dart de Dijon France in 1988 and received his MFA in video and short film at Villa Arson, Nice France in 1991. The two artists attended the prestigious Institut des Hautes tudes en Arts Plastiques in Paris in 1991 and 1993.

Meghan Boody

Meghan Boody creates fantastical photo composites where personal avatars undergo challenging adventures. These characters go on cosmic, mythic quests that explore the nature of inner change. Her images are intricately layered digital collages which draw from her extensive travels, in studio portraiture and, most recently, NASA imagery. Boody received a BA from Georgetown University and discovered her love of photography while apprenticing with the photographer, Hans Namuth. Selected exhibitions include institutions such as The Rubin Museum of Art and the The Houston Center of Photography. Her work is in the collections of museums throughout the world including the Whitney Museum of American Art, Herbert F. Johnson Museum at Cornell University, and the Museum of Old and New Art (MONA) in Tasmania.

Nancy Dwyer

Nancy Dwyer came to recognition early in her career as a member of The Pictures Generation. Her multimedia paintings and sculptures explore language and perception, context and objects. In addition to numerous solo exhibits, Dwyer has shown work at major museums, including The Pictures Generation at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in 2009, the Whitney Museum of American Art, MOCA Los Angeles, Contemporary Art Museum Houston, Kunsthalle Wein, Dunedin Public Art Gallery, New Museum, and a retrospective at t
