Американский фонд Harpo Foundation занимается финансовой поддержкой непризнанных, неизвестных художников, которые работают с принципиально новыми направлениями в визуальной области, проекты которых расширяют границы виденья визуальной культуры. Фонд выдает 10-15 грантов до 10 000$ (в год) на реализацию инсталляции, выставку, арт-резиденцию или общественный проект.До 1 февраля необходимо послать краткое письмо-запрос на участие в гранте. 15 марта кандидатов оповестят и тогда необходимо будет выслать развернутое описание, предложение своего проект. Конкурс на грант международный, участие бесплатное.



Harpo Foundation was established in 2006 to support artists who are under recognized by the field. This applies to all artists whether emerging or further along in their careers. We view the definitions of art and artist to be open-ended and expansive.
The Foundation's grant program awards 10-14 non-profit institutions annually with funds to support the production of new work by visual artists. The Foundation's fellowship program funds two residencies annually for Native American visual artists at the Vermont Studio Center to support the development of artists and the potential for inter-cultural dialog.

2012 Grant Cycle

Harpo Foundation will use a new 2-step application process to review proposals submitted by non-profit institutions and fiscal sponsors who seek support on behalf of under recognized visual artists. Unlike in 2010 and 2011, the foundation will not use a thematic focus to prioritize funding in 2012. 
ProposalsThe foundation will consider proposals that directly support the production of new work by visual artists and/or collaborative teams who are under recognized by the field. This production may happen in the context of an installation, public intervention, residency, or exhibition.
CriteriaIn its grantmaking, Harpo Foundation prioritizes projects that advance and cross the boundaries of visual media and artistic disciplines. Proposals are evaluated on the basis of the quality of the artist's work, the potential to expand aesthetic inquiry, and the strength of its relationship to the foundation's priority to provide support to visual artists who are under recognized by the field.


The foundation awards between 10-15 grants annually and funding decisions are made by the Board of Directors. As a general guideline, requests should not exceed $10,000 per year. Allowable use-of-funds includes direct support to the artist for honoraria, commissioning fees, production costs, and travel. 
All projects funded during the 2012 funding cycle should be completed by September 2013. Projects that are scheduled in 2012 but happen prior to the foundation's November notification date may be eligible for funding on a retroactive basis. 

In rare cases the foundation will fund multiyear projects up to 3 years to provide support to artists whose projects rely on the passage of time as an essential component to its concept and structure. Of interest are durational approaches as they relate to changes in the physical environment, or as they inform an artist's process. Proposals must demonstrate that the complexity of an artist's project -its temporal and/or spatial dimensions - is time dependent. For example, a project that cannot be completed independent of a particular time frame because its very structure is based on seasonal shifts or a requirement to visit and document a certain place a number of times to collect information or research how a subject changes over time. The foundation is interested in supporting projects that will allow time and its properties of change to become a part of the project's cumulative process. 

Single year projects that have durational qualities will be considered under this special interest as well. 
Questions about the relevance of a project to this multi year funding should be addressed to the Director by emailing Julie Deamer at Этот e-mail адрес защищен от спам-ботов, для его просмотра у Вас должен быть включен Javascript .
