ICA's Foster Prize winner is...

Andrew Witkin of Boston.

Just as we predicted.

“Andrew Witkin’s quiet installation suspends the boundary between the artistic and the everyday, simultaneously evoking a sense of isolation and a longing for connection,” ICA Director Jill Medvedow said in a press release.

The ICA says the winner, who receives a $25,000 prize, was chosen by a jury including Nicholas Baume, ICA chief curator; Ian Berry, associate director and curator, Tang Museum, Skidmore College; Ambreen Butt, artist and 1999 recipient of the Foster Prize; Jennifer R. Gross, curator of Modern and contemporary art, Yale University Art Gallery, and Denise Markonish, curator, Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art.
