Deadline: November 9, 2012
The grants are reserved for curators and scholars, French or British, or legal residents of France or the United Kingdom for at least five years and have a minimum of three years of research or professional experience in the field.
- Preference is given to those who are currently employed by or have a specific project in collaboration with an art institution. Applicants must obtain authorisation from their partner institutions to travel for the proposed period of research.
- Eligible projects may include research for an exhibition or publication, travel to visit specific sites and collections, an intensive period of reading or writing or other projects that support professional development. If funding is requested for conducting research for an exhibition, preference will be given to projects at an early stage of their development. Eligible projects must be ongoing (not yet completed).
- Projects may be in the fields of visual arts, video and new media by contemporary French and British artists.
- Research grants do not cover institutional overhead costs or the planning of an exhibition apart from research. These grants are not intended to fund research for the completion of an academic degree and are therefore not generally offered to curators currently enrolled in a training or university program in the field.
- Applicants may reapply for the same project only if significant changes have been made (change in artists, approach, etc). Grant recipients may only reapply after a hiatus of three years.
Grants are awarded through an open competition administered by Fluxus. Applications are reviewed by Fluxus Artistic Committee, composed of prominent arts professionals, and judged on the quality of the proposed project and the applicant’s qualifications.
- Payment of the grant and travel expenses is only made once travel arrangements have been set. Fluxus reserves the right to cancel or demand return of payments for any awards attributed based on false information or not used as agreed upon in advance.
Terms and conditions
- The successful applicants will be notified by email
- Upon completing their research, all recipients will be required to write detailed descriptions documenting how their use of the grant fulfilled the program’s goals. Ideally, their specific research will translate to tangible results, such as a publication or exhibition.
- Recipients must agree to mention the support of Fluxus, Franco-British Fund for Contemporary Art, Curatorial Research Grants Program and other funding sources indicated by the Fund, on all communication materials produced for the research and its possible outcomes. http://www.fluxusfund.com/projects/curatorial-grant/application-form
