Dora Akunyili's Daughter Wins 2017 Macarthur N225M Grant by nairaway(m) : 12:08 pm On Oct 12
Figurative painter and daughter of late Dora Akunyili, Njideka Akunyili-Crosby is among the 24 winners of the 2017 MacArthur “Genius” Fellowship.
Typically awarded to around 20 American artists, academics, writers, and scientists each year, the grant is given to “talented individuals who have shown extraordinary originality and dedication in their creative pursuits and a marked capacity for self-direction.”
According to the foundation, each will receive a $625,000 award from the foundation "as an investment in their potential," paid out over five years with no strings attached.
Los Angeles-based Akunyili was praised for her works that “express the hybridity characteristics of transnational experience through choices of subject matter, materials, and techniques.”
The 34yrs old lady's solo exhibition at the Tang Museum in upstate New York opens this week.
