In order to develop an art practice — an ongoing process of production based on conceptual and formal investigation — artists need time, stimulating input, access to technical skills, conversations with peers, and exchange with audiences. To facilitate these evolving processes, Mophradat is introducing this revised version of what was the Grants for Artists program to include two components: firstly, providing artists with flexible financial support that can be used towards their livelihood, ongoing research, and/or the realization of a particular proposal; secondly, connecting the participating artists with their peers (of the selection committee) with whom they will engage in a structured dialogue over three sessions throughout the grant period.
For this pilot edition, the program will provide approximately ten grants of either US$2,500 or US$5,000 covering periods of research, residencies, production of new work, curating and presenting shows, amongst other forms of artistic work. The program is only open to those interested in ongoing conversation with the professional peers Mophradat is engaging for this purpose.
