International Grant Program 2013/14, Lepsien Art Foundation, Düsseldorf
The Lepsien Art Foundation
Artists can apply annually, beginning 1st of April. This year 2013, the deadline for applications is the 15th of June. Usually more time is allowed for applicants to submit, but due to high number of applications last year, the application period has been reduced. For the first time, the foundation has a dedicated online application tool for all artists applying for the program on their website: http://www.lepsien-art-foundation.com/
Basic criteria for the application:
The candidates must already have a degree from a recognized national or international art college/university and must have already gained some first public recognition (e.g. exhibitions, publications, etc.). Applicants should not be older than 39 years at the time of applying for the grant program.
An integral part of the grant program is the provision of studio spaces in the Art House Düsseldorf, Germany (http://www.the-art-house.eu/) where the five awarded artists will work together for the period of the program. Furthermore the program includes the production and publication of limited art editions (Edition Lepsien Art Foundation) jointly with all grant holders. At the end of the grant program a joint exhibition of all artists will take place and an annual catalogue will be published with the Kerber Group in connection with the final exhibition.
