Mika Rottenberg is the 2018 winner of the museum’s James Dicke Contemporary Artist Prize.

Rottenberg was selected by a panel of jurors who wrote in a joint statement, “Mika Rottenberg’s art represents the outliers and the overlooked, giving vivid form to the contemporary human condition. Through video, sculpture and installation, she turns her attention most often to women, creating a portrait of female experience in our hyper-connected, global capitalist reality.”
