This edition of the biennial Foster Prize, highlighting work by Boston-area artists, will introduce a new component: a program of intimate, in-gallery Foster Talks in which each artist will engage in a discussion with a figure who has influenced their work. Each talk will address the artist’s work and the creative process.
Sonia Almeida will discuss her work in the 2017 James and Audrey Foster Prize with Ulrike Müller, artist and Co-Chair of Painting at the Milton Avery Graduate School of the Arts at Bard College.
The 2017 James and Audrey Foster Prize exhibition and Foster Talks are generously endowed by James and Audrey Foster.
