Terra Summer Residency Fellowships in Giverny, France

Founded in 2001, the Terra Summer Residency brings together doctoral scholars of American Art and emerging artists worldwide for a nine-week residential program in the historic village of Giverny, France.  The program encourages independent work while providing seminars and mentoring by senior scholars and artists to foster reflection and debate. The Terra Summer Residency provides an opportunity for participants to widen their academic and creative horizons, explore international cultural perspectives, and forge lifelong exchanges and professional networks.

For more information about applying for the Terra Summer Residency, as well as invited senior advisor and guest lecturer positions, please email tsr@terraamericanart.eu.

The 2017 Terra Summer Residency will run from June 5 to August 4.

Deadlines 

Applications are due January 15, 2017; awards will be announced in April 2017.

Eligibility & Application Information 

Candidates worldwide can apply. Applicants must be either:

  • A visual artist with a master’s degree or its equivalent at the time of application. Preference is given to applicants who have completed their degree within the past five years.
  • A doctoral candidate researching American art and visual culture or its role in a context of international artistic exchange prior to 1980. Candidates at all stages of doctoral research and writing are welcome to apply.

Applicants must be nominated by their dissertation advisor or professor or previous art-school supervisor. Each professor may nominate a maximum of two candidates each year. (See the application form for full nomination and application procedures.)

Applicants for the Terra Summer Residency will be evaluated on intellectual and creative excellence, scholarly and artistic accomplishments, and ability to contribute in a collegial and interdisciplinary community.
