ArtPrize 2014: Anila Quayyum Agha’s ‘Intersections’ Loved By Public, Jury, Artists and More

Matt Milhouse/100.5 The River

Anila Quayyum Agha’s “Intersections” won the public vote at ArtPrize 2014. It was also co-winner of the juried award, earning $320,000.

“Intersections” has found what may be the widest fan base of any piece over the six years of ArtPrize.

From the first day of ArtPrize, “Intersections” felt like a favorite. The piece met the criteria which are almost requirements for public vote success. It was large, had an appropriate amount of space to be viewed in, and was at a high-traffic venue. It also photographed wonderfully and drew praise from critics and casual observers.

ArtPrize Artist Jennifer Cronin shared her thoughts on the winner with us:

I’m really glad that the piece “Intersections” won.  It was really breathtaking and amazing the way it transformed the space.  It was great that the public and the jury agreed, and I think it’s because that piece had thoughtful conceptual components, but still an amazing wow factor that could appeal to everyone, young and old, art-background or no art-background.”

This list of fans goes on.

It’s hard to say if there will ever be another public-jury co-champ, but “Intersections” shows that the public and jury CAN agree. That realization could inspire more artists to enter ArtPrize and lead to more growth in years to come.
