The Theme
Renewable Coexistence

The pandemic prompted widespread, collective reflections on the changes that are needed for a more equitable and sustainable world. How are our individual lives intrinsically intertwined with the lives of other human beings and species? How can we co-exist in sustainable ways that benefit human beings and the planet? This edition of the award welcomes explorations of renewal, regeneration, and synergistic co-existence with a sensitivity toward the conditions.

The Prize 
The final winner of the Silvana S. Foundation Commission Award 2022 will not only receive a monetary award, but also an opportunity to showcase their work and create philanthropic impact. The $20,000 award will support the creation of new works which will be part of a fundraising solo exhibition showcase with Jada Art Gallery in early 2023. Profits from the sales of works will benefit both the artist and the charity chosen by Silvana S. Foundation.
