The purpose of the Frieze Impact Prize is to expose the inequitable aspects of the criminal justice system and challenge its racially-biased public perceptions, with special consideration given to recognizing work by justice-involved artists. The Frieze Impact Prize will award $25,000 to an artist for a work of art that can contribute to the movement to end mass incarceration. Every applicant will submit one work they would like the jury to consider, and this one work and responses submitted on this form will form the main basis of the jury’s consideration of each applicant. Applications to the Frieze Impact Prize is open to any U.S.-based visual artist who is aged 18 or older, regardless of e.g. citizenship status, felony convictions, or formal training in art.
