- Anonymous was a Woman Award
- October 13, 2016 - October 13, 2016
Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac congratulates Rona Pondick with her Anonymous Was A Woman Award.
Anonymous Was A Woman is an unrestricted grant of $25,000 that enables women artists, over 40 years of age and at a significant juncture in their lives or careers, to continue to grow and pursue their work. The Award is given in recognition of an artist's accomplishments, artistic growth, originality and potential.
The name of the grant program, Anonymous Was A Woman, refers to a line in Virginia Woolf’s A Room of One’s Own. As the name implies, nominators and those associated with the program are unnamed. The award was begun in 1996 in response to the decision of the National Endowment of the Arts to cease support of individual artists.Read more

- June 24, 2015 - March 1, 2016
- Metropolitan Museum of Art
The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, launches the second season of The Artist Project, an online series in which 100 artists choose individual works of art or galleries that spark their imaginations. In this online series, artists reflect on what art is and what inspires them from across 5,000 years of art. Their unique and passionate ways of seeing and experiencing art encourage all museum visitors to look in a personal way.
Over the course of five seasons, The Artist Project will share the perspectives of one hundred artists with the public, telling us what they see when they look at The Met.
In Season 1 which started in March 2015 renowned artists such as Tom Sachs or Cory Arcangel participated in the project. In the second season Robert Longo, Rona Pondick and David Salle will share their view amongst seventeen other international artists.
