Call for applications
Franklin Furnace Fund (2010-2011)
Deadline: April 1, 2010
The Franklin Furnace Fund, supported by Jerome Foundation and the Lambent Foundation.
Each year Franklin Furnace awards grants to emerging artists, allowing them to produce major works in New York. Grants may range between $2,000 and $10,000 depending upon funding received by Franklin Furnace. Artists from all areas of the world are encouraged to apply; however, funded projects must be presented in New York. Full-time students are ineligible.
In the spring of 2008, Franklin Furnace combined the Franklin Furnace Fund for Performance Art and The Future of the Present programs into one, entitled the Franklin Furnace Fund. Franklin Furnace made the decision to combine these programs because during the last decade, artists have created works on every point of the spectrum between the body of the artist and the circulatory network of the Internet in the creation of temporal work.
Franklin Furnace has no curator; each year a new panel of artists reviews all proposals. We believe that this peer panel system allows all kinds of artists from all over the world an equal shot at presenting their work. Every year the panel changes, as do the definitions of "emerging artist", "performance art" and "variable media art". So if at first you don't succeed, please try again.
Rules for Application Submissions:
1) Applications forms must be submitted online via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. and also a hardcopy mailed with support material.
2) You are strongly advised to submit a DVD containing a 30-second preview and a longer version of your work sample of up to ten minutes. We also accept images in jpeg format and url links to website samples.
3) Only one proposal per artist is allowed.
The application process for 2010-2011 is now open.
Deadline to submit application is April 1, 2010. This is a postmark deadline!
