The Mike Kelley Foundation in Los Angeles named ten recipients of its Artist Project Grants for 2018. The organization working to preserve the late artist’s legacy tapped projects to be presented by local institutions: the Craft & Folk Art Museum, Fulcrum Arts, Hammer Museum, JOAN, LA Freewaves, LAXART, the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, Museum of Latin American Art, Self Help Graphics & Art, and the Underground Museum.
In a statement, Mary Clare Stevens, the foundation’s executive director, said, “The grantees this year reflect Los Angeles’s energized and diverse art scene, and underscore the foundation’s commitment to support risk-taking, underseen, and hard-to-fund work.”
