July 10, 2019

John Edmonds has been awarded the inaugural UOVO Prize, a collaboration between the Brooklyn Museum and UOVO. The prize includes a solo show at the Brooklyn Museum and a large-scale mural to be erected on the facade of UOVO: Brooklyn, our upcoming location in Bushwick.

“We’re so pleased to offer the UOVO Prize to John Edmonds, an artist whose gorgeous photographs negotiating the intersection of race, gender, sexuality and spirituality have been captivating us over the past several years,” said Anne Pasternak, Shelby White and Leon Levy Director of the Brooklyn Museum. “We can’t wait to share his ambitious body of work with Brooklyn, both inside the museum and outside on the UOVO: BROOKLYN façade.”
