THE INSTITUTE OF CONTEMPORARY ART/BOSTON


“We congratulate this year’s James and Audrey Foster Prize winner, Katarina Burin, whose fictional archive of a Bauhaus-era female architect explores themes of absence and presence through the physical traces of human history.” 

—JILL MEDVEDOW, Ellen Matilda Poss Director


Katarina Burin
has been named the winner of the 2013 James and Audrey Foster Prize, the biennial award recognizing a Boston-area artist of exceptional promise. The winner was selected by a distinguished jury including Mark Dion, artist; Paul Ha, director of MIT List Visual Arts Center, Cambridge, MA; and Ali Subotnick, curator at the Hammer Museum, Los Angeles, CA.

The exhibition presents Burin’s work, along with that of the three other finalists: Sarah Bapst, Mark Cooper, and Luther Price. Selected for the innovation, conceptual strength, and skillful execution of their work, the finalists all share a confident artistic approach: a sign of breakthroughs to come.

..................................................................................................................................
Sarah Bapst's sculpture and works-on-paper explore how to approach the arbitrariness of art in making decisions about form and content.

Katarina Burin's drawings, structures, installations, and collages are influenced by the documentation and circulation of historical architecture and design imagery.

Mark Cooper's paintings and sculptures—made with fiberglass, rice paper, painting, silk screen, and varying images and patterns—explore dualities of culture and meaning. Known for his work as a filmmaker, 

Luther Price creates handmade slides using found footage and raw materials he then manipulates and reassembles in a study of dying technology.

The exhibition and prize are generously endowed by James and Audrey Foster.
