TFF celebrates artists of all kinds, not just filmmakers. For the 11th consecutive year, the Tribeca Film Festival Artists Awards Program, created by TFF co-founder Jane Rosenthal and sponsored by CHANEL, will celebrate New York artists by awarding works of art to filmmakers selected by the TFF jury as winners in their respective categories.
At the 2012 Tribeca Film Festival (TFF), presented by American Express, 11 major contemporary artists will display and donate their paintings, photographs, etchings, prints or sculptures: Peter Dayton, Walton Ford, Stephen Hannock, JR, Kim Keever, Clifford Ross, Nathan Sawaya, Cindy Sherman, Hugo Tillman, Kara Walker, and Stanley Whitney.
The artwork will be publicly exhibited at the New York Academy of Art, 111 Franklin Street, Manhattan. The exhibit, which is free and open to the public, will run for three weeks, from April 5-25, 2012, between the hours of 11am–7pm (closed on April 8 for Easter). New Yorkers and festival-goers alike are invited to view the works before they are presented at the Tribeca Film Festival Awards Ceremony on the evening of April 26, 2012.
“The artists awards program has been a great tradition since we founded Tribeca,” said Tribeca co-founder Jane Rosenthal. “We are so pleased to have these respected and innovative artists involved with the Festival by honoring our filmmakers with their art.”
"Chanel is delighted to continue the relationship with the Tribeca Film Festival Artist Program.,” said John Galantic, President and Chief Operating Officer of CHANEL, Inc. “What an honor to be celebrating our 7th year. We look forward to viewing and supporting the work of both new and established artists."
