The Calder Foundation announced that conceptual artist Jill Magid has won the 2017 Calder Prize. 

The Calder Prize is awarded biannually to honor a living artist who has completed exemplary and innovative early work and who has demonstrated the potential to make a major contribution to the field. Created by the Calder Foundation in collaboration with the Scone Foundation in 2005, the Calder Prize grew out of the success of the Atelier Calder residency program located at Calder’s former studio in Saché, France. The Prize consists of $50,000, the opportunity for a three-month residency at the Atelier Calder, and the facilitation of a gift of the recipient’s defining works to a major public collection. Past recipients are Haroon Mirza, 2015; Darren Bader, 2013; Rachel Harrison, 2011; Tomas Saraceno, 2009; Zilvinas Kempinas, 2007; and Tara Donovan, 2005.
