Carolyn Glasoe Bailey Foundation Art Prize 2019: Kelly Akashi

Posted Posted in Art Prize, Foundation News

Announcing the 2019 Carolyn Glasoe Bailey Foundation Art Prize

Carolyn Glasoe Bailey Foundation is pleased to announce that the recipient of the 2019 Carolyn Glasoe Bailey Foundation Art Prize is Los Angeles based artist Kelly Akashi. The prize consists of a $10,000 unrestricted cash grant, an artist residency in Ojai, and a solo exhibition at the Carolyn Glasoe Bailey Foundation. Previous prize recipients include Ry Rocklen (2018) and Rob Fischer (2017). The prize is awarded on an annual basis and the current focus is on supporting artists of merit living in Southern California with an interest in creating deeper engagement with the Ojai Valley community.

Akashi will be honored at the Carolyn Glasoe Bailey Foundation Art Prize Gala on Saturday June 29, 2019 in Ojai, and the exhibition Kelly Akashi in Residence will be on view from June 29 – September 23, 2019. Click for more information about the Art Prize Gala and tables and tickets.

Akashi has exhibited nationally and internationally and was recently featured in the 2016 exhibition Made in LA Biennial at the Hammer Museum. Her most recent solo institutional exhibition Long Exposure at SculptureCenter in New York in 2017 was curated by Ruba Katrib. An excerpt from Katrib’s essay Kelly Akashi – In the middle: “Her works revel in micro interactions, spinning out through the various details and associations she can actualize within a tangible form. Akashi slows down and speeds up the processes of turning a material or an effect into a thing, creating a growing lexicon of inherent and internal material qualities.”

Frederick Janka, Executive Director, Carolyn Glasoe Bailey Foundation, and curator of Kelly Akashi in Residence is currently working with the artist to develop her exhibition through multiple site visits to Ojai to meet creatives and makers that will inform the exhibition. Janka says: “Akashi’s works have a gravitational pull that focuses on her innovative use of material and interest in both exploring and exposing the artistic process. She is constantly challenging assumptions of use, while creating incredibly smart and awe inspiring artworks.”
