by Ashton Cooper
Independent Curators International has announced that Fondazione Prada president Miuccia Prada and director Germano Celant are the recipients of this year’s Leo Award and Agnes Gund Curatorial Award, respectively, marking the first time the awards have been given as a pair.
The Leo Award recognizes “pioneering contributions to the field of contemporary art” and the “Aggie” Award, named for Agnes Gund, “honors a curator who has made an outstanding contribution to the presentation and discourse of contemporary art.” They are being awarded to Prada and Celant for the Prada Foundation’s international art sponsorship, in particular the exhibition “When Attitudes Become Form: Bern 1969/Venice 2013,” which is currently on view at the Ca’ Corner della Regina, the revamped former palazzo that became the Prada Foundation’s Venice exhibition space in 2011.
