Call for applications

Deadline 30 June 2012, 7:00pm IST

The Foundation for Indian Contemporary Art (FICA) is pleased to invite applicants for the Research Fellowship 2012, a partnership with The Delfina Foundation (DELFINA), Iniva (Institute of International Visual Arts) and the Goldsmith’s Department of Visual Cultures and the PhD. Program in Curatorial/Knowledge, London.

The Research Fellowship 2012 aims to provide an opportunity for intensive research in the field of visual arts by curators and researchers who have an innovative visual culture project, and 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 projects that are further along in their development and engage with specific cultural and curatorial issues; however, new areas of research can also be proposed.  Artists are welcome to apply; however this residency is largely focused on the development of critical-curatorial discourse, not singularly on artistic practice.

DELFINA is supporting a research fellow from MENA (Middle East, North Africa) region to be in residence alongside the FICA participant from India.  The initiative will provide opportunities for both fellows to undergo the programme together, which may result in opportunities for knowledge exchange and critical discourse across the MENASA (Middle East, North Africa, South Asia) region. Please note that MENA participants should apply directly to DELFINA and applicants from India should apply to FICA.

The recipient will receive: A 12-week residency (late September to December) in London, including one return flight to London, a bursary for per diems and basic living costs, and accommodation at DELFINA, access to attend Goldsmith’s post-graduate courses and the Curatorial/Knowledge seminars, personal tutoring from faculty members of Goldsmiths and Iniva, and an opportunity to be involved in developing research and discussion with the Iniva’s Curatorial team, among other things.
