About GFAA and the 7th edition GFAA Nominees
The GFAA program conducts extensive year-round research of curated exhibitions and installations across the globe, designating awards for group and themed exhibitions, as well as awards for solo artist shows. This year GFAA has selected 116 nominees which represent works in 6 continents, 31 countries and 68 cities. This edition features a new award, Best Digital Exhibition or Online Educational Program, reflecting the current global conditions precipitated by the corona virus.
Exemplified by the two awards launched in 2017 – Global Planet and Global Humanity, GFAA is determined to continue to illuminate the best works produced every year voicing the connection of art and global concerns.
Geographic, scale, ethnic and gender diversity are essential in the GFAA research and nominee selection:
