The Institute of Contemporary Art in Miami has named Damián Ortega as the first winner of its new annual Ezratti Family Prize for Sculpture.
The award will go toward the fabrication of a new commission, ‘Replicant Stone’, which will be installed in the ICA’s Sculpture Garden in November this year.
“Damián has been an artist who has consistently reinvented the form of sculpture, considered the role of the work in public, and experimented with materials and forms, perhaps like no one else of his generation.” Alex Gartenfeld, ICA Miami artistic director
