Artist Talk with the 2021 Ritzau Art Prize Winner | Micha Serraf
We are pleased to announce that Micha Serraf is the winner of the Ritzau Art Prize 2021! Serraf will be speaking about his practice alongside Colleen Ritzau Leth (Founder of the Ritzau Art Prize) and Kneo Mokgopa (Advocacy Manager, Nelson Mandela Foundation). The Ritzau Art Prize is an award supporting extraordinary artists from the African continent with three-month career-enhancing residencies at International Studio & Curatorial Program (ISCP) in New York City supported by Tauck Ritzau Innovative Philanthropy.
The International Studio & Curatorial Program (ISCP) supports the creative development of artists and curators, and promotes exchange through residencies and public programs. Housed in a former factory in Brooklyn, with studios, galleries, and a project space, ISCP is New York’s most comprehensive international visual arts residency program, founded in 1994.
The Ritzau Art Prize is funded by Colleen Ritzau Leth, Executive Director at Tauck Ritzau Innovative Philanthropy, a private family foundation that since 2017 has supported residencies for young, promising African artists at the International Studio & Curatorial Program in Brooklyn, New York. The prize builds on the foundation’s commitment to provide artists from the continent with dynamic, immersive residencies that create visibility and advance their careers.
