CAA is pleased to announce the 2020 recipients of the Terra Foundation for American Art International Publication Grant.

This program, which provides financial support for the publication of book-length scholarly manuscripts in the history of American art, is made possible by a generous grant from the Terra Foundation for American Art. For this grant, “American art” is defined as art (circa 1500–1980) of what is now the geographic United States.

The four Terra Foundation grantees for 2020 are:

  • Monica Bravo, Greater American Modernism: U.S. Photographers and the Mexican Cultural Renaissance, Yale University Press
  • José E. Muñoz, Cruising Utopia: The Then and There of Queer Futurity, Brook, translation from English to French
  • Craig Owens, Craig Owens: The Indignity of Speaking for Others. Selected Essays, Même pas l’hiver, translation from English to French
  • Mona Schieren, Transcultural Translation in the Oeuvre of Agnes Martin: The Construction of Asianistic Aesthetics in American Art after 1945, Columbia University Press and Transcript Verlag, translation from German to English

The International Author Conference Subventions confer two non-US authors of top-ranked books travel funds and complimentary registration to attend CAA’s 2021 Annual Conference in New York, February 10-13; they also received one-year CAA memberships.

The two author awardees for 2020 are:
