Though she didn't end up winning it I was very pleased to see Argentinian artist Amalia Pica nominated for the Future Generation Art Prize at the PinchukArtCentre last year. From Art in America:
Established by the Victor Pinchuk Foundation, the $100,000 prize is an award for artists under the age of 35. Out of 4,200 applicants from 134 countries in an open process, a selection committee chose 20 artists representing 16 countries.
I vividly remember stepping into her studio at Headlands during an Open House to find the wooden floor completely covered in swirling patterns of confetti which she had meticulously taped down piece by piece. Her work is magic.
