OPEN FOR APPLICATIONS
Deadline: June 9, 2014
Application fee: none
Delfina Foundation is inviting applicants from India and the Arab world for the Research Fellowship 2014, which is in partnership with Iniva (Institute of International Visual Arts) and Goldsmiths College’s Department of Visual Cultures and the PhD Program in Curatorial/Knowledge.
The Foundation for Indian Contemporary Art is supporting a research fellow from India to be in residence alongside a participant from the Arab world supported by Delfina Foundation's family of individual supporters. Please note that Indian participants should apply directly to FICA here and applicants from the Arab world should apply to Delfina Foundation.
The Research Fellowship 2014 aims to provide an opportunity for intensive research in the field of visual culture by curators and researchers who might benefit from the research and curatorial work that is being done by the fellowship's partner institutions in London. Priority will be given to ideas that can be reasonably developed during the three-month residency into a blueprint for a future project (e. g. publication, exhibition, etc.). Artists are welcome to apply; however this residency is largely focused on the development of critical-curatorial discourse, not singularly artistic practice or projects.
The 2014 recipients will receive:
A 12 week residency (from 23 September - 15 December 2014) in London, including one economy return flight to London, a bursary for per diems and basic living costs, and accommodation.
Access to attend Goldsmith’s post-graduate courses and the Curatorial/Knowledge seminars
Access to the Iniva’s Stuart Hall Library and Archive
An opportunity to assist with Iniva and Delfina Foundation’s programming
Goldsmiths, Iniva and Delfina Foundation will provide an important platform to the recipient scholar to meet fellow research scholars, artists and a network of professionals in the field of contemporary art in London
Conditions for applicants:
Living and working in India or the Arab world
Preferred: Proven commitment/experience of curatorial work
Practical experience will also be considered, although not mandatory
Available during the autumn 2014 term and able to be released from employment or other academic involvement; additionally applicants must not take up other commitments and travel during the fellowship
Proficient in English
Applicants are expected to submit:
An application form (see link below)
Examples of relevant work (preferably two writing samples)
The Research Fellowship is an application-based process. The recipient will be chosen by a jury comprising of independent scholars in the field of visual arts and the partners.
Please submit only electronic copies of the above documents to the relevant email address in the application form.
