JAMAICAN SELECTED AS SOROS ART FELLOW

 

Deborah Anzinger has been chosen as a 2020 Soros Art Fellow. She is one of 10 artists, curators, cultural organizers, and researchers selected for their work exploring the intersection of migration, public space, and the arts.

Each fellow gets an $80,000 stipend to realize an ambitious project over the next 18 months. Anzinger will create sustainable community sculptures in Jamaica’s Cockpit Country, an area of historic Maroon resistance now threatened by environmentally destructive policies.

The Soros Arts Fellowship, part of the Open Society Foundations, supports innovative mid-career artists and cultural producers advancing social change around the world. The fellowship provides artists with the resources to develop a large-scale project on their own terms in their own local contexts.
