Kaira Cabañas, a graduate student in Princeton's Department of Art and Archaeology, has been awarded the 2006 Dedalus Foundation Dissertation Fellowship.
The award carries a stipend of $20,000 for Cabañas' work on her dissertation, titled "Toward a Performative Realism: Art in France, 1957-1962." Her research focuses on the relationship between the avant-garde art of the Nouveaux Réalistes and the growing media culture in France during that period.
The Dedalus Foundation was founded by the artist Robert Motherwell to support public understanding of modern art and modernism through research, education, publications, collections and exhibitions.
