Description

Each summer the Terra Foundation offers ten residential fellowships for emerging artists and doctoral scholars in the history of American art and visual culture at its properties in Giverny, France. The Terra Summer Residency (TSR) offers opportunities to pursue individual work within a framework of interdisciplinary exchange and cross-cultural dialogue. During this 9-week period, fellows interact regularly with invited senior advisors and guest lecturers, who direct weekly seminars and hold individual meetings. Private visits to exhibitions and attendance of special conferences are also proposed. In addition to the fellowship stipend, fellows are provided with on-site lodging, working facilities and lunches for the duration of the residency. At the end of the program, fellows share the work that was accomplished during the residency and the artists present their work in the open studios. The program encourages fellows to make lifelong connections and become part of the international alumni community of Terra fellows.
