Congratulations to Humaira Abid, a recipient of the 2019 Arts Innovator Award alongside Lucia Neare. From the Artist Trust announcement:
Challenging our preconceived notions of connection and empathy, both Abid and Neare use their work to address institutional, social, political and economic barriers. Expounding upon themes such as women’s daily lives, stereotypes, and taboos, to reimaging urban landscapes as a place for radical joy, they create work that can’t be defined by traditional or conventional standards.
The Arts Innovator Award is funded by The Dale and Leslie Chihuly Foundation and supported by Artist Trust
