PERFORMANCE ARTIST, DRAMATIC AND NONFICTION WRITER, FILMMAKER AND TEACHER
CURRENT AND UPCOMING
Following the death last year of artist/writer Jacki Apple, I worked with her sister and several colleagues to create The Jacki Apple Award in Performance and Artist Projects. This annual award will give $10,000 to an artist in LA and one in NYC, administered by the LACE (LA) and Franklin Furnace, (NYC). The first year, the award will be focusing on mid and late career artists. The first Apple/LACE award was announced January 2024, Marcus Kuiland-Nazario!
