NEW YORK, NY.- The Armory Show and Athena Art Finance Corp. announced blank projects (Cape Town) as the winner of the second annual Presents Booth Prize. Supported in its second edition by Athena Art Finance, the Presents Booth Prize recognizes an outstanding and innovative gallery presentation within the Presents section of the fair.

By a majority decision, the international jury awarded blank projects a $10,000 prize for its exemplary presentation of Igshaan Adams and Cinga Samson.

The 2018 Presents Booth Prize jury is comprised of: Naomi Beckwith, Marilyn and Larry Fields Curator at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago; Glenn Fuhrman, Collector and Founder of FLAG Art Foundation; Marguerite Hoffman, Collector; and Pamela Joyner, Collector and Philanthropist.

The Presents section within The Armory Show is a platform for galleries no more than ten years old to showcase recent work from emerging artists. Solo-artist and dual-artist presentations spotlight the next generation of artistic talent, which visitors can discover in this in-depth and intimate setting.

Jonathan Garnham, Founder and Owner of blank projects: “We're really pleased and very proud to have been awarded the Presents Booth Prize this year. It's a privilege to bring the work of Igshaan Adams and Cinga Samson from South Africa and present it to an American audience in New York, and for it to be so well received.”

Their presentation of Igshaan Adams and Cinga Samson, whose works both deal with issues of identity, is relevant and compelling and was a standout for the jury.

The Presents Booth Prize generously supports younger galleries in their pursuit to present their artists on an international stage like The Armory Show.”
