Adorable art world wackadoodle Ryan Trecartin is one of 15 nominees for the Smithsonian American Art Museum Contemporary Artist Award. Established in 2001 as the Lucelia Artist Award, the $25,000 prize recognizes an artist younger than 50 “who has produced a significant body of work and consistently demonstrates exceptional creativity.” Past winners include Pierre Huyghe, Jessica Stockholder, Andrea Zittel, and Jorge Pardo. A panel of five jurors nominated the artists and will determine the award winner in a day of discussion and review. The names of the jurors will be revealed in October when the winner is announced. GOOD LUCK!

Art world darling Ryan Trecartin took this video of Jessica Biel hobbling down the red carpet at the Met Ball Monday night. It’s like watching a three-year-old in mummy’s heels. Hysterical. (t/y Mary Ann)
