Open Call: BMW ART MAKERS—Artist-Curator Duo

Intro

THE NEW BMW GROUP FRANCE ARTS PATRONAGE PROGRAM WILL SUPPORT AN ARTIST-CURATOR DUO EVERY YEAR, LEADING TO THE COMPLETION OF A VISUAL ART PROJECT

After twenty years spent supporting photographers and ten years of the BMW Residency, BMW Group France is now reorienting its support for the arts and reinventing its model. While its new program continues to focus on emerging work, experimentation, and image-making, the scheme’s scope has been broadened to include all visual arts, with a scholarship offered to an artist-curator duo and a budget available for researching and producing works.

→ a €10,000 scholarship for the artist

→ an €8,000 scholarship for the curator

→ a €15,000 budget for researching and producing works production of a personal exhibition included in the program for Rencontres d’Arles and Paris Photo

→ mentoring from jury members

→ support with communications

Duos can submit their applications between October 8 and December 15, 2021, through the dedicated platform:
→ bmw-art-makers.com

Nominated duos will be contacted in early January to present their project to the jury and the winning duo will be announced in mid-January 2022.
