Fellowship

Guggenheim Memorial Foundation Fellowship Competition

Guggenheim Fellowships are intended for individuals who have already demonstrated exceptional capacity for productive scholarship or exceptional creative ability in the arts.

Fellowships are awarded through two annual competitions: one open to citizens and permanent residents of the United States and Canada, and the other open to citizens and permanent residents of Latin America and the Caribbean. Candidates must apply to the Guggenheim Foundation in order to be considered in either of these competitions.

The Foundation receives approximately 3,000 applications each year. Although no one who applies is guaranteed success in the competition, there is no prescreening: all applications are reviewed. Approximately 175 Fellowships are awarded each year.

During the rigorous selection process, applicants will first be pooled with others working in the same field, and examined by experts in that field: the work of artists will be reviewed by artists, that of scientists by scientists, that of historians by historians, and so on. The Foundation has a network of several hundred advisers, who either meet at the Foundation offices to look at applicants’ work, or receive application materials to read offsite. These advisers, all of whom are themselves former Guggenheim Fellows, then submit reports critiquing and ranking the applications in their respective fields. Their recommendations are then forwarded to and weighed by a Committee of Selection, which then determines the number of awards to be made in each area. Occasionally, no application in a given area is considered strong enough to merit a Fellowship.

The Committee of Selection then forwards its recommendations to the Board of Trustees for final approval. The successful candidates in the United States and Canada competition are announced in early April; those in the Latin America and Caribbean competition, in early June.

We guarantee our advisers and Committee of Selection members, as well as those who submit letters of reference, absolute confidentiality. Therefore, under no circumstances will the reasons for the rejection of an application be provided.

The theme of this edition of the CUVO festival is "Viral Camera", for this reason it is requested that the proposals are linked or related in some way with this idea. There are no limitations of the conceptual or experimental type, the call is open to any type of video work and image-sound based works that seem impressive or innovative as experience.

Shadows - Open Call for Artists

As many philosophers testify, Plato in the first place, the shadow since ancient times has always been the object of symbolic interpretations and associations, becoming a reason for reflection on the human condition and its existence.

The present call invites photographers and graphic designers to propose works in which the shadow is called to play a role that is not only metaphorical on the philosophical or conceptual level, but also as a compositional element of an image that, in contrast with the light, confers more pathos to a scene and / or a subject.

Bodies in Movement: Open Call

Take part in the Group Exhibition in Rome, Italy. February 2019.

Accepted media: Photography, Digital Graphic, Digital Visual.

The works that will take part in this exhibition will represent a continuum of that dialogue between the visual arts and the arts of movement, dance and performing arts, made manifest since their first developments and in which the art history has found an essential bond. From the plastic arts of Canova, to the pictorial ones of Matisse, Degas and Impressionists, to the performative experiences of the neo-avant-gardes documented through photographs and videos during the 60s / 70s, as no less are the testimonies expressed by the dance world starting from Martha Grahm and Merce Cunningham.
Even the gestural component in general finds in this call an important channel of expression, where the body language is subjected to new analyzes that investigate the behavior and lifestyles of man in the modern age.

FREE ENTRY Artists are invited to submit 1 to 3 artworks addressing the theme.

International Competition for Intermedia Artwork

The International Competition for Intermedia Work of Art is being organised for the first time in 2018. The competition is intended for intermedia artists. The purpose of this competition is to identify works that open a discussion into comparison and evaluation criteria for intermedia works of art, the presentation forms of such works and the role of artistic work in communication.
