Fellowships of up to $5,000 to USA curators for research projects. Funding is intended for freelance applicants or those affiliated with institutions to conduct a research project in the genre of contemporary art. Projects must have French or France-based artists as the subject. Applicants must have a clearly defined curatorial research project with a French partner organization or individuals.

Etant donnés offers grants to American curators wishing to conduct and deepen a research project about French or France-based artists. These grants are intended to expand the opportunities of American curators, to encourage in-depth explorations of French cultural resources, and to provide a forum for the exchange of ideas and knowledge among artists, professionals, researchers, and institutions.

Candidates are encouraged to connect with art professionals and other researchers as well as with institutions, universities, art schools, or private and public archives in preparation for future exhibitions or collaborations.

If needed, the Cultural services of the French Embassy in collaboration with the Institut Français – Paris can facilitate the research by providing tailored advice, access to resources, and contacts with the right professional networks in France.

Priority will be given to curatorial fellowships planning to present the result of the research in one way or another in the U.S. via an exhibition, publication, talk, lecture, screening, performance, etc.

Applicants affiliated to institutions must obtain authorization from their institution to travel for the proposed research.

The grant is intended to contribute to covering the costs of transportation, lodging, per diems, insurance, and any costs related to the research trip.
