2014 Critical Mass Top 50!

Take a Look!

Critical Mass

The aim of Critical Mass is to provide participants with career-building opportunities and to promote the best emerging and mid-career artists working today. Critical Mass is about exposure, connection, and community - as well as some very notable awards!

Congratulations to Critical Mass Solo Exhibition award winner Cheryle St. Onge! And - the Rauschenberg Residency award winner is Tamara Staples. The monograph award winner will be announced over the next few months.

Information about Critical Mass 2015 will be posted this spring. Registration will open on June 15th.
Stay tuned!
