Fondation Calouste Gulbenkian: Open Call – 2nd Edition, 2021-2022
The Delegation in France of the Gulbenkian Foundation opens on February 15, 2021 the second edition of its call for applications for exhibition projects by or with Portuguese artists in France.
Open until April 30, 2021, this call is intended for artistic institutions (museums, art centers, foundations, associations, biennials and festivals, etc.) wishing to present Portuguese artists in their programming. It concerns all disciplines of the visual arts.
This exhibition support scheme aims to support the visibility of Portuguese creation on French territory, an objective that has been at the heart of the Gulbenkian Foundation’s mission since its creation in 1956. Over the years, the Foundation has contributed to promoting and facilitating the circulation and mobility of hundreds of artists within prestigious international institutions.
In the first edition of the call, the Foundation awarded a grant to eight winning institutions for projects presented during the year 2020 – 2021:
The Villa Arson for its carte blanche to João Fiadeiro and Violaine Lochu;
The Centre Photographique d’Île-de-France which will present a monographic exhibition of the artist Sandra Rocha ;
In Extenso – Contemporary Art Place for the project “Tools for Living”, a monographic exhibition of the artist Andreia Santana ;
The Festival CIRCULATION(S) for its Focus Portugal within the 2021 edition of the Festival ;
The Hollow of Hell for a monographic exhibition by the artist Francisco Tropa, – “Wall Wall” ;
The contemporary art center Le Lait for the exhibition “Woven languages” by the artist Isabel Carvalho;
The Ecole nationale supérieure d’arts de Paris-Cergy/ Centre d’art Ygrec for an exhibition by the artist Angela Ferreira, “Structures and Gestures – Independence Cha Cha & #BucketsystemMustFall”;
The Institut National d’Histoire de l’Art (INHA) for a collective exhibition entitled “Résistance Visuelle Généralisée” (Generalized Visual Resistance) with, among others, works by artists Filipa César, Fernando Calhau, Ana Hatherly and Daniel Barroca.
The France-Portugal Season, which will take place from February to October 2022 simultaneously in both countries, will also be an opportunity to increase the visibility of Portuguese contemporary art in France.
