Presentation

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.

In addition to a stipend, fellows receive on-site lodging, use of working facilities, and lunches for the duration of the residency.

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.)

Evaluation

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. As the program’s working language of the program is English, all applicants are expected to be fluent; knowledge of French is an asset but not required.

The selection of fellows is made by an independent selection committee, who will meet in March 2016. The awards will be officially announced in April 2015.
