Moore, My Barbarian, NSK (Neue Slowenische Kunst), Ted Purves, Gerald Raunig, Navin Rawanchaikul, Katerina Šedá, Chemi Rosado Seijo, Andreas Siekmann, Mierle Laderman Ukeles, Ultra-red, United Indian Health Services, Urban Bush Women, Voina, Dan S. Wang, WochenKlausur, and Women on Waves.
The Leonore Annenberg Prize for Art and Social Change is an annual, $25,000 award, generously supported by the Annenberg Foundation and presented by Creative Time each year at the Summit. The prize honors an artist who has committed his or her life’s work to promoting social justice through the arts.
