ABOUT THE ARTIST

Daniela Rivera (born 1973 in Santiago, Chile) is a painter and installation artist working with immersive architectural forms on a monumental scale. A professor at Wellesley College, Rivera addresses the history of repression that she experienced firsthand during Chile’s dictatorship while also implicating the viewer in larger global narratives of labor, trauma, and dislocation.

ABOUT THE RAPPAPORT PRIZE

This year marks the twentieth anniversary of the prestigious award, which is presented to a contemporary artist with strong connections to New England and a proven record of achievement. Established in 2000, the Rappaport Prize is one of the most generous contemporary art awards of its kind. In 2010, the Prize was endowed in perpetuity by the Phyllis and Jerome Lyle Rappaport Foundation, assuring the ongoing support of contemporary art and artists in New England. In 2019, The Rappaport Foundation made an additional gift of $500,000 in order to increase the annual award amount from $25,000 to $35,000, beginning with this year’s Prize. Learn more.
