From Katherine Keener’s article for Art Critique regarding new grant endowed by Mariette Pathy Allen:
This November Queer|Art will announce the recipient of the inaugural Illuminations Grant for Black Trans Women Visual Artists. The grant will be an annual award boasting a $10,000 (~£8,000) prize and professional development guidance and resources, but its purpose is to shed light on Black trans women who have contributed to the art world but remain largely unrecognised. Artist Mariette Pathy Allen, whose photographs have worked to expand understanding of gender and transformation, has provided support for the grant. . .
