Pathways 2022: The Carlos Malamud Prize Exhibition

Monday, July 11, 2022 10 a.m. to Friday, July 15 at 5 p.m.

This exhibition is the result of a collaborative partnership between the UCF Art Gallery at the University of Central Florida and the Rollins Museum of Art to celebrate and support emerging professional artists working in Florida. Juried by an external panel of three professionals from various areas of the art world, this year’s edition of the exhibition features six artists with diverse practices. The selection includes a variety of media, themes, scales, and approaches, showing a wide breadth of perspectives and experiences. Works by the six finalists will be shown at both venues, creating opportunities for engagement with two of the area’s major academic constituencies and their surrounding communities. The winning artist of Pathways: The Carlos Malamud Prize will receive a $10,000 cash prize, a solo exhibition at the RMA in the summer of 2023, and will participate as a juror for the following edition of the exhibition. The winner will also receive additional professional development and support. This consistent engagement over time makes Pathways unique and transformative among other art competitions. It hopes to nurture emerging artists and provide a pathway to success, which coincides with the core missions of both presenting institutions.

This year’s finalists are Eugene Ofori Agyei, Channing Gray, Aimee Jones, Eric Ondina, Ivan Riascos, and April Webb.

The finalists were selected by an independent panel of jurors:
Liz Parks, Art Advisor and Founder of Parks Fine Art, New York
Jonell Logan, Independent Curator and Vice President and Creative Director of the McColl Center, North Carolina Omari Booker, Visual Artist, Los Angeles, and Nashville
