The New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA) is proud to announce the creation of the Recharge New Surrealist Prize, a $7,000 award for painters living in the United States and U.S. Territories who are working in the New Surrealist style. The award program, formerly known as the Recharge Foundation Fellowship for New Surrealist Art, will be administered by NYFA with funding provided by the Gu Family of the Recharge Foundation.
Applicants must be working in the New Surrealist style. The New Surrealist style is an extension of the Surrealist movement which was at its height in the 1920s. Artists working within this style combine imagery in uncanny and unexpected solutions.
Applicants must be painters. NYFA defines painting as a work that involves painting on any kind of surface.
Applicants must be at least 18 years of age at the time the application closes.
NYFA employees, members of the NYFA Board of Trustees or Artists’ Advisory Committee, and/or an immediate family member of any of the above cannot apply.
Students in bachelor’s or master’s degree programs are eligible to apply.
