On 25 October 2016, Artadia — a non-profit organisation promoting the visual arts — announced the five finalists of the Atlanta Award 2016. Amongst the 188 candidatures received by the body, Kelly Kristin Jones, T. Lang, Jiha Moon, Zipporah Thompson and Cosmo Whyte have been singled out as the finalists. The selection jury was composed of four exhibition curators from major US museums including Jamilah James, curator at the Institute of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles. The Atlanta Artadia Award 2016 is open to artists living in the city of Atlanta for at least two years in a row, and practising art in any medium. Hernandez Chong Cuy said that the selection process was difficult because many artists presented rich, powerful works.
