Santa Fe Art Institute
2020 HARPO Emerging Artist Fellowship Residency at the Santa Fe Art Institute
The Santa Fe Art Institute is accepting applications for the 2020 HARPO Foundation Emerging Artist Fellowship Residency from August 1 to October 1, 2019 (11:59 pm).

The HARPO Foundation Emerging Artist Fellowship Residency at the Santa Fe Art Institute (SFAI) is a prestigious award established in 2013 to provide an emerging visual artist with strong artistic ability and an evolving practice, the space and time to explore ideas and start new projects in a residency context at a pivotal moment in their professional development.

The HARPO fellowship is open to international applicants who are self-defined under-recognized* visual artists** over the age of 25 and not enrolled in a degree program at the time of the application deadline.

*To determine whether an artist is “under-recognized” the selection committee looks at an artist’s resume and overall presence in the field. If they see that the artist has already achieved a certain amount of prominence and recognition because they have (1) presented their work at venues such as major museums, art centers, international biennales, (2) received multiple notable awards and grants, (3) enjoy the representation of a prominent commercial gallery, they would likely not consider the applicant to be “under-recognized” by the field. As a general rule, the HARPO Foundation prefers that their funding goes toward providing opportunities and encouragement to artists who have yet to receive this level of support.

**Visual Artists (e.g., Painting, Illustration, Sculpture, Photography, Printmaking). Creative writing, dance, theater, film, digital/new media, performance art, and site specific installation art fall outside the purview of the HARPO Foundation. However, a proposal with an interdisciplinary approach may be considered as long as it has a strong visual art component.

The HARPO Fellow will receive a one-month residency at SFAI, which includes a private room and bath, a semi-private studio, access to common facilities and basic tools, breakfast food items, two communal meals, participation in open studios, and a $500 travel stipend.

The HARPO Fellow is integrated into SFAI’s International Thematic Residency Program and may also share space with a variety of local and international Fellows sponsored by government agencies including the Taiwan Ministry of Culture and Greece Fulbright Commission. The HARPO Fellow is not required to engage the 2020 Labor residency theme in their work, but may do so if they wish.

The application requires a project proposal, 5-10 work samples, biography, CV/Resume, and 2 letters of recommendation from professional references.
