CALL FOR APPLICATIONS: CONNEXION GRANTS

The ADAGP is launching the first edition of annual grants worth €30,000 to financially support venues in materialising international co-production projects or helping artists of the French scene exhibit abroad.

In 2018, as part of its mission of cultural action and support for creation, the ADAGP, Society of Authors in the Graphic and Plastic Arts, set up grants to support the showing of French artists in foreign art venues.

The organisation of an exhibition abroad remains a complex and expensive operation to put together, and many French venues have very little means to develop such projects.

To contribute to increasing and developing the influence of French artists on the international scene, the ADAGP is creating a new grant, Connexion, for public and private French venues (museums, art centres, FRAC, artist-run spaces, etc.), that organise exhibitions by artists from the French scene in all areas of the visual arts (painting, sculpture, video, photography, design, etc.), co-produced or on tour with one or more foreign venues.

 

What is the amount of the grant?

Two grants worth €30,000 each will be granted in 2018.

 

Who is this grant for? Who can apply?

Public and private French venues (museums, art centres, FRAC, artist-run spaces, etc.), that are organising an exhibition of artists from the French scene in co-production with or which will be repeated in one or more foreign venues.

 

What kind of exhibitions?

Monographic or collective exhibitions of artists from the French scene (working or residing in France) in all areas of the visual arts (painting, sculpture, video, photography, design, etc.).

The exhibitions must be completed within 2 years.
