Sharjah Art Foundation: Open Call For Submission (1 April – 1 June 2010).

The Sharjah Art Foundation is accepting submissions for the Production Programme Open Call until June 1, 2010. Three artists’ grants of up to 100,000 USD for the realization of individual projects will be offered. The Sharjah Art Foundation Production Programme broadens the possibilities for the production of art in the MENASA region through a commitment to support innovation and excellence in artistic practice by encouraging risk and experimentation. Arts practitioners are invited to propose imaginative, ambitious and inspirational projects that will transform our understanding of what art is and how it can be experienced. Three production grants will be offered to artists working in a range of media including sculpture, installation, time-based media, artist’s books and performance.

Submissions are accepted between 1 April and 1 June 2010 with the selections announced in early October. The selected projects will be developed and produced by the artist and the Sharjah Art Foundation with presentation of completed works in 2011 and 2012.
