Dread Scott
Grants for Visual Artists

Dread Scott works in a range of media: performance, installation, photography, video, screen-print and painting. The thread that connects his work is an engagement with sharp social questions confronting humanity and a desire to push formal and conceptual boundaries. (Excerpt and images below selected from grant proposal. All works are copyright of the artist.)


Harpo Foundation is pleased to provide Mr. Scott with a direct artist grant to assist his production and development of new work.
