B Covington Sam-Sumana

Rapid Response Fellow
2020 – 2020

For Rapid Response Phase 1, B Covington Sam-Sumana will research the creation of a new type of award process that does not rely upon the surveillance and visibility of its recipients typical of many capital awards. The New Millennium Almanac 2020 Micro-Prize is a micro grant program initiated by the artist as an alternative to pre-existing models and includes a granting program, as well as a short manifesto-style treatise, originally developed while in residence at La Becque. Awardees will range from those across arts, media, sci-tech, and agriculture related inter-disciplines.
