Fundación Botín Visual Arts Grants

határidődeadline: 2022. május 6.

Fundación Botín is pleased to announce their 29th Visual Arts Grants (2022), offering six scholarships for artists of any nationality with an expected duration of nine months and an endowment of 23,000 euros each.

The Visual Arts Grants are intended to support the development of personal and research projects. Of the six grants, one will be reserved for an artist who is Spanish or a resident in Spain (for at least five years immediately prior to applying for the grant), under 30 years of age, who wants to spend time abroad to continue their work, their studies or a residence.

In addition to the financial support, the grants programme will showcase the works created by the chosen artists in a collective exhibition at Centro Botín, Itinerarios, which this year celebrates its 27th iteration. The works will be presented not only in the exhibition gallery but also in other spaces or formats better suited to making the artists’ research public, as may be the case with performance, participatory activities or video cycles, among others. At the end of the grant period, Fundación Botín continues its commitment with the artists by closely following their career and, where appropriate, by purchasing works for the Collection.

Artists interested in opting for a grant should make an initial application using the registration form available on the websites of the Fundación Botín and Centro Botín, and submit the remainder of the requisite documentation on paper by May 6. Every application received will be studied by a specially convened external jury of artists, curators and professionals, with different members each year. From July 18, the final decision of the jury will be made public on both of the aforementioned websites.
