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.
