Description: The Craft Research Fund – Exhibition grant is one of four categories that make up the Craft Research Fund, a visionary program dedicated to supporting scholarly craft research in the United States. The grant is intended to support scholarly research and is not for the creation of artwork. Examples of exhibition research might include: addressing work by significant craft artists; presenting a new understanding of the relationship between handmade production and digital technologies; placing American craft in a global context; or other topics that offer fresh perspectives within the field. Grant funds may be used to support research activities including travel for research, commissioning essays for contributors, documentation such as images or rights to use images or text, as part of the research for future exhibitions.
Award: Up to $15,000
Eligibility: Proposals welcome from museum, non-profit gallery, and independent curators. Applicants must be 18 years or older. Organizations must limit staffing/overhead costs to 15% of total budget ask. Applicants may not apply for both the project grant and exhibition grant in the same year. See website for full details.
Deadline: Oct. 4, 2021
