The Kicker

AWARD WINNING.In case you missed it, late in the afternoon yesterday, the Whitney Museumannouncedthat Ralph Lemon has won its $100,000 Bucksbaum Award, which goes to an artist participating in the Whitney Biennial. In a statement, the museum described Lemon’s contributions to the recurring exhibition as“hundreds of drawings from over or more than 25 years in five transient variations that unfolded monthly over the course of the exhibition” held to the wall by pushpins. Curiously, the winner of the Bucksbaum is typically announced during the run of the Biennial; the 2022 edition, however, closed on Labor Day. Perhaps, the day has to do with one of the exhibition’s cocurators, David Breslin,jumping shipearlier this week to head up the modern and contemporarydepartment at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.[ARTnews]
