Celebrating the completion of over 100 projects by grantees

As 2019 comes to a close, the Graham Foundation celebrates more than one hundred projects supported by our grantmaking program that were presented to the public worldwide this year. Exploring questions about architecture and its role in the arts, culture, and society, these projects expand our understanding of the field by tackling diverse subjects and challenging conventions in formats such as exhibitions, events, films, performances, and publications.

Featured here are publications funded by the Graham Foundation and released this year. To learn more about our grantees’ other recent work, visit
