Dyani White Hawk, She Gives Quiet Strength VII, 2020.

Multidisciplinary artist María Magdalena Campos-Pons; composer and visual artist Raven Chacon; sculptor and video artist Carolyn Lazard; and multidisciplinary artist Dyani White Hawk have been announced as among the 2023 class of MacArthur Fellows by the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation. The four join sixteen other recipients of the so-called genius grants issued this year by the foundation and recognizing individuals in fields including environmental science, anthropology, law, and molecular biology. Each fellow receives an $800,000 stipend, with no strings attached.

“The 2023 MacArthur Fellows are applying individual creativity with global perspective, centering connections across generations and communities,” said MacArthur Fellows director Marlies Carruth in a statement. “They forge stunning forms of artistic expression from ancestral and regional traditions, heighten our attention to the natural world, improve how we process massive flows of information for the common good, and deepen understanding of systems shaping our environment.”
