The Fulbright Program has issued a call for submissions for the Fulbright75 Virtual Art Exhibit, in honor of the 75th Anniversary of the Fulbright Program.
All Fulbrighters who utilized their grant to pursue a project within the visual arts are invited to submit work for the inaugural Virtual Art Exhibit. This exhibit is a celebration of the 75 years of impact our program has had within the lives and careers of artists around the world. We are honored to have played a role within the important cultural conversations that have taken place within the global spaces our arts grantees have cultivated, and we’re excited to bring those conversations to an inclusive virtual space.
Artists are invited to submit 1-3 high-definition images of relevant work. If you would like to submit an excerpt from a film, or other video content, please limit the file to a length of 3 minutes. If this is an excerpt from a larger piece of work, we ask that you include a link to the larger piece.
All art submitted to the exhibit must have been created during your Fulbright grant, or inspired by it in a meaningful way. Collaborations are welcomed, so long as non-Fulbright collaborators are from your host institution or country. If the Fulbright connection is not obvious, please elaborate in the description of your upload.
While we appreciate the creative talents of all Fulbrighters, only alumni and current grantees who formally pursued an arts grant are being asked to submit art at this time.
If you would like to submit a video or excerpt from a film, please select a video up to 3 minutes long with a link to the full project.
All submissions must contain #FulbrightVirtualExhibit within the description on the upload page in order to be considered. This tag will help us to discern exhibit submissions on our platform.
The deadline for submissions is August 1st.
Several Fulbright 75th Anniversary Legacy Alumni Ambassadors will curate submissions and notify selected artists of their inclusion in the exhibit. The exhibit will be live for public viewing in October.
For information about submissions or the exhibit, please contact Kristine Lin or Kathya Landeros.
Further information about Fulbright Student and Scholar awards in the arts:
The Fulbright U.S. Student Program welcomes applications in the creative and performing arts. Arts candidates for the U.S. Student Program should have relatively limited professional experience in the fields (typically 7 years or less) in which they are applying. Creative and visual arts projects fall under the Study/Research grant category and are available in all countries where Study/Research grants are offered. Artists with more experience should consider applying for the Fulbright Scholar Program, where there are numerous opportunities in the Fine Arts.
