(April 13, 2016, Cambridge) The Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology, Harvard University, is pleased to announce the selection of the 2016 Robert Gardner Fellowship in Photography. Following an international search, the Gardner Fellowship committee awarded the Fellowship to Mexican artists Ilana Boltvinik and Rodrigo Viñas (TRES).  The Fellowship carries a $50,000 stipend to begin or complete a proposed project followed by publication of a book. For their Fellowship year, Boltvinik and Viñas will be developing the second phase of their project Ubiquitous Trash, a beach-waste, art-based, research series, which began in Hong Kong in 2015 and will now expand Western Australian beaches.  Read the Press Release
