Graham Foundation presents 2022 grants to organizations

The Graham Foundation is happy to announce the grant awards of 36 funds to international organizations. These initiatives include exhibitions, books, digital projects, and other public displays run by organizations in cities like Accra, Ghana; Buenos Aires, Argentina; Colombo, Sri Lanka; London, United Kingdom; New York, NY; St. Louis, MO; Toronto, Canada; and Chicago, Illinois, where the Graham Foundation is based. These organizations support each other’s efforts to seek new avenues for the industry and include practitioners and audiences throughout the world through the work of architects, artists, designers, critics, curators, and others.

The new grantees join the Graham Foundation’s global network of organizations and people it has helped since its beginning in 1956. Over the course of that time, the Foundation has provided more than 5,000 projects with direct support totaling more than 42 million US dollars.
