The Sotiris Felios Collection Residency Curatorial Programme 2022

7 Jun 2022

Applications for the Sotiris Felios Collection Residency Programme 2022 are now open. The six-week fully-funded residency in Athens offers current Courtauld PhD candidates, MA students, final year BA students, and the most recent cohort of graduates the opportunity to develop their practice as art historians and curators, through engaging in academic research and the development of curatorial projects of their own.

Building on a broad network of art professionals from Athens-based institutions and leading practitioners living and working in Greece, the Residency Programme aims to create support channels for emerging curators and art historians, who want to expand academic research around contemporary figurative art and its connection to the international art scene, as well as develop their curatorial practice through engaging in a self-initiated project that builds on thematics linked to The Sotiris Felios Collection and the community of Athens.

Residents are invited to spend six weeks in Athens, while developing research related to their proposal through learning about the Collection, meeting the artists associated with it and art professionals from leading museums and galleries. From the moment residents arrive they will be immersed in the vibrant and unique art scene of Athens while also experience the striking diversity of the local community, where the Residency is based.

To apply, applicants must provide the following:

  • A completed and signed application form.
  • Curriculum Vitae (no more than two pages).
  • A list with selected images of previous projects (no more than two pages)
  • A 500-word proposal on the research willing to undertake while on residency
  • A 300-word text on how the residency would benefit your long-term academic or curatorial practice and why Athens is your city of choice.

The submission deadline is Friday 17 June 2022.
