NADA and Aspen Insurance are proud to announce XYZ Collective from Tokyo as the recipient of the inaugural Aspen Insurance Project Grant, juried by Nicelle Beauchene, Elyse Derosia, and Matthew Higgs. The Grant awards the gallery, from the NADA Projects section, to occupy a complimentary small booth in the Galleries section the following year, sponsored by Aspen Insurance.
Conceived by Matthew Higgs in 2010, NADA Projects are designed to highlight small-scale presentations from emerging galleries and independent organizations. This partnership between NADA and Aspen Insurance will help support the growth and development of the grant recipient.
“The project booths were conceived of as platforms for young galleries to have the opportunity to share in the art fair experience, with the idea that they could grow to participate in a regular sized booth at the fair. We are excited to award XYZ Collective the Aspen Insurance Project Grant as they have consistently used their booth in interesting ways, helping to push and redefine this section of the fair. We look forward to seeing their expanded presentation next year,” said Grant jurors Nicelle Beauchene and Elyse Derosia.
The Aspen Insurance Project Grant is sponsored by Aspen Insurance, the insurance segment of Aspen Insurance Holdings Limited which is a leading global (re)insurance company that offers coverage from 11 countries around the world.
