Gramercy International Prize Winner: Ramiken

Ramiken (Booth 520) has been selected as the recipient of the inaugural Gramercy International Prize and will exhibit a dual-artist presentation of works by Darja Bajagić and Andra Ursuţa. Combining wall sculptures from Ursuțaʼs Vanilla Isis series with paintings on printed and sewn canvas by Bajagić, the presentation offers idiosyncratic and complicated views on extremism, sexuality, and politics. This prize is a new, yearly initiative that supports the advancement of young and pioneering New York galleries who have not previously participated in The Armory Show.

In the spirit of the fair's founders, the Gramercy International Prize will award a nominated gallery with a booth at no cost to showcase a solo or dual-artist presentation, providing a platform for experimentation and discovery with minimal financial risk.
