About 2021 Grant Process
In Round 15 of the Alternative Exposure Grant Program, Southern Exposure is awarding $60,000 to 14 projects, each receiving an award of $4,285. Alternative Exposure grants fund the unincorporated, independent work of artists and collaboratives who invigorate and transform the San Francisco Bay Area arts community. The awarded public projects will take place in the San Francisco, Alameda, and Contra Costa Counties.
14 recipients were selected from 63 applications: AeroSoul Collective, Graham Laird Prentice / FENCELINES, Real Time & Space Alexander Feliciano Mejía & Henry Sales, Ratskin Records, Sun Night Editions, Moments Cooperative, Kat Trataris, Premiere Jr., Beatrice L. Thomas, FEELS, John Davis, Alta Fe, and Vacancy Roam.
The 2021 grantees were selected by an outside panel of three artist organizers and former grantees, Jessalyn Aaland, Pablo Guardiola, and Marcel Pardo Ariza.
To date, Southern Exposure has awarded a total of $1,012,400 to 312 artists and projects, an enormous milestone for this project, thanks to major support from the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts.
