Hadassah-Brandeis Institute > 2021 HBI Artist Programme (Online / Remote)

Based at Brandeis University in the United States, the Hadassah-Brandeis Institute (HBI) develops fresh ways of thinking about Jews and gender worldwide by producing and promoting scholarly research, artistic projects and public engagement.

As we experience the ongoing social changes resulting from Covid-19, HBI recognises that engaging with art is more important than ever. Artists are responding to the crisis in innovative ways, prompting us to acknowledge and embrace this new virtual reality. Accordingly, the 2021 HBI Artist Programme seeks proposals for new or existing work that can prominently occupy a digital / online / remote format, including innovative forms of presentation and implementations that allow remote audience participation. Proposals must relate to HBI’s mission of developing fresh ideas about Jews and gender, and they invite submissions that emphasise the experiences of Jews of colour.

The 2021 HBI Artist Programme provides an artist the opportunity to publish a printed exhibition catalogue and have an online solo exhibition for twelve weeks under the auspices of the Kniznick Gallery at Brandeis University. The selected artist is awarded a $2000 exhibition stipend and a $500 honorarium to produce two virtual public programmes during the exhibition. The online exhibition and public programmes will run from March–June 2021.

Applications from outside the United States are welcome.

Deadline: 1 September 2020
