The Terra Foundation for American Art is inviting applications for its Summer Residency program.
Founded in 2001, the Terra Summer Residency brings together doctoral scholars of American art and emerging artists worldwide for a nine-week residential program in Giverny, France. The program encourages independent work while providing seminars and mentoring by senior scholars and accomplished artists.
Fellowships are awarded to visual artists and doctoral candidates researching American art and visual culture or its role in a context of international artistic exchange prior to 1980. In addition to a $5,000 stipend (and an additional $300 stipend to artists for the purchase of materials), fellows receive on-site lodging, use of working facilities, and lunches for the duration of the residency. Fellows also receive a travel contribution (up to $500 for individuals traveling from Europe, up to $1,200 for individuals traveling from the U.S. and Canada, and up to $1,500 for individuals traveling from other destinations). Due to the nature and format of the program, the residency does not accommodate family members (including partners and children) or other guests.
The 2020 Terra Summer Residency will run from June 8 to August 7, 2020.
Applicants must be recommended by their dissertation advisor or professor or a previous art-school supervisor. Artists must have a master’s degree or its equivalent at the time of application (preference is given to applicants who have completed their degree within the past five years), and doctoral candidates at the dissertation-writing stage are encouraged to apply.
See the Terra Foundation website for complete program guidelines and application instructions.
