|We are pleased to announce that Amir H. Fallah is the 2018 recipient of the Northern Trust Purchase Prize and his painting, Calling On The Past, 2018 has been acquired for The Smart Museum at the University of Chicago's permanent collection.
The Northern Trust Purchase Prize is an annual gift of artwork selected from EXPO CHICAGO, and donated to the collection of a Chicago cultural institution. Alison Gass, the Smart Museum’s Dana Feitler Director, joined Smart Museum curators and members of the Museum’s Board of Governors in selecting the artwork from one of the exhibiting EXPOSURE galleries. The EXPOSURE section, curated by Creative Time's Executive Director Justine Ludwig, elevates the profile of young international galleries and supports the careers of emerging artists.
