Deadline to apply is 14 September
The open call for travel grant applications funded by the Getty Foundation and the Fundación Cisneros/Colección Patricia Phelps de Cisneros offers around 25 grants to support the attendance of modern and contemporary art curators and museum or collection directors to CIMAM’s 2016 Annual Conference titled « Museum and Its Responsibilities » that will be held in Barcelona, 18–20 November 2016.
Grants are restricted to modern and contemporary art curators and museum or collection directors in need of financial help to attend CIMAM’s Annual Conference. Researchers and independent curators whose field of research and specialization is contemporary art theory, collections and museums are also eligible. While professionals of all career levels are encouraged to apply, priority is given to junior professionals (less than 10 years’ experience).
The support is limited to cover conference registration*, travel expenses (round trip economy tickets only) and accommodation in one of the hotels recommended by CIMAM. Distribution of funds is set on a case-by-case basis for each recipient. Funds are exclusively related to support the purpose for which the grant has been awarded.
