Artist and curator Julia Ault, painter Titus Kaphar, and filmmaker and performance artist Wu Tsang have been named among the latest group of “genius” grant winners from the John D. & Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation. The “no strings attached” grant of $625,000 is paid out in quarterly installments over a period of five years. According to the MacArthur Foundation website, the fellows are determined based on three criteria: exceptional creativity; promise for important future advances based on past accomplishments; and potential for the grant to facilitate subsequent creative work.
