Upcoming Call for Applications – Getty Residential Grants
The Getty Research Institute is pleased to announce the theme for residential grants for pre-docs, post-docs, and scholars at the Getty Center and Villa for the 2024/25 academic year.
Applications will open on July 1, 2023, and applications are due by October 2, 2023.
In this moment of extreme environmental decay and monumental epidemic loss, the Getty Scholars Program invites applications on the pressing topic of extinction and its bearing on the visual arts and cultural heritage. Scholars are asked to contemplate how representational practices are deployed to cope with the precarious survival of plants, animals, and humans; the ever-present specter of species-level extinction and resource exhaustion; and, at the most extreme pole, the brutality of mass atrocity. On another level, atrophy, decay, and obsolescence constitute the temporal dimensions of certain artistic practices, especially as creative approaches, technologies, media, formats, and ideals become outmoded or superseded. The finality of disappearance may also portend a certain amount of hope for rebirth, innovation, or recovery. We invite proposals on these topics from art historians and those from related disciplines.
