Administered by the New York based, philanthropic FJC Foundation, the no-strings-attached cash awards of $25,000 are given to artists nominated by a panel of other distinguished women, among them art historians, curators, writers and previous winners, whose names remain anonymous, hence the title. Previous winners over the years include Martha Rosler, Lutz Bacher, Lynn Hershman Leeson, Liza Lou, Frances Stark and Laura Poitras.
