AWARDS FOR ARTISTS 

Award Winners Announced 

Printed Matter Awards $25,000 to Artists! 

Printed Matter is pleased to announce the winners of our first annual 
Awards for Artists. Made possible by a generous gift from the Andy 
Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, Awards for Artists provides aid 
to artists who make books in a climate that is particularly difficult 
for artists. 

Awards for Artists is adjudicated through a peer group process: Printed 
Matter invited twenty artists to nominate up to five artists each for 
the award. From the 63 finalists, a jury of three artists—Geoff 
Hendricks, Robin Kahn, and Paul Mpagi Sepuya—chose the following ten 
artists to receive an award of $2,500 each: 

Osa Atoe (New Orleans, LA) 

Heather Benjamin (Basking Ridge, NJ) 

Nicholas Dumit Estevez (Bronx, NY) 

Edie Fake (Baltimore, MD) 

Eve Fowler (Los Angeles, CA) 

Chitra Ganesh (Brooklyn, NY) 

K8 Hardy (Brooklyn, NY) 

Arnold Kemp (Brooklyn, NY) 

Julio Cesar Morales (San Francisco, CA) 

Carlo Quispe (New York, NY) 

Printed Matter will present an exhibition of the award winners in 
September, 2009. 

Printed Matter thanks the 20 nominators and the 63 finalists for their 
work on the project: the material we received, much of it from artists 
we did not previously know of, was of an astonishingly high quality. 

Printed Matter staff and their families are not eligible to nominate or 
be nominated, nor may they sit on the jury for these awards. Nominees 
are chosen through a closed process; we do not accept unsolicited 
applications.
