The 2024 Artist Awards Program Celebrate Innovative Artists and Filmmakers

Chanel and the Tribeca Festival are teaming up once again for the 2024 Artist Awards program, now in its 19th year. The program aims to celebrate the connection between different art forms, with Chanel’s support allowing each selected artist to gift a piece for the exhibition. Curated by Racquel Chevremont, artists involved in the program include Deborah Kass, Erick & Elliot Jiménez, Glenn Ligon, Jenny Holzer, Joiri Minaya, José Parlá, Juliana Huxtable, Maia Cruz Palileo, Paul Anthony Smith, and Tourmaline.

Describing the program as “celebratory, unique, and visionary,” Chevremont highlighted the intersection of artistic fields. Deborah Kass expressed her excitement about the sense of community and support the award represents for artists, especially in New York, the greatest city for exchanging ideas across various mediums.

The collection of artwork will be showcased at the Tribeca Festival Hub at Spring Studios throughout the event. José Parlá praised the festival for its revitalizing impact on art, culture, and storytelling, emphasizing the giving nature of creativity.

Additionally, Chanel announced a panel titled “Championing the Next Generation” as part of its “Through Her Lens” program, which supports female and non-binary filmmakers. The 2024 Tribeca Festival will run from June 5 to June 16 and will kick off with the opening night film, “Diane von Furstenberg: Woman in Charge,” directed by Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy and Trish Dalton.

Various awards will be presented to filmmakers during the festival, including the Founders Award for Best U.S. Narrative Feature, Best International Narrative Feature, Best Documentary Feature, The Albert Maysles Award for Best New Documentary Director, Student Visionary Award, Best Animated Short, Best Documentary Short, Best New Narrative Director, Best Narrative Short, and the Nora Ephron Award.
