Camargo Art Fellowship 2024 / 2025

Camargo Art Fellowship

Founded by American artist and philanthropist Jerome Hill (1905-1972), the Camargo Foundation fosters creativity, research, and experimentation through its international residency program for artists, scholars, and thinkers. Located in Cassis, France, on the edge of the Medi[1]terranean Sea, the Foundation offers time and space in a contemplative and supportive environment, giving residents the freedom to think, create, and connect.

The Camargo Fellowship not only provides time and space for the residents, but also initiates exchanges within the group and develops a collective spirit, which is one of the program’s distinctive features. The interactions developed among the program’s fellows are a vital element of this program.

ELIGIBILITY

ARTISTS Artists should keep in mind that the Camargo Fellowship is a research-based residency. Applicants should have had a practice for, at a minimum, the previous 5 years. They should be the primary creators of new work or a new project. They should be able to demonstrate a track record of publications, public performances and exhibitions, credits, awards, and/or grants.

We are interested in artists who have a fully developed, mature artistic voice. Applicants may include artists who are engaged in critical thought and research[1]oriented projects. When applying, artists will have to identify among the following subcategories: Visual Artists / Choreographers, Theater Directors, and Performance Artists / Writers and Playwrights / Film, Video, and Digital Artists / Composers and Sound Artists / Multidisciplinary Artists.

The Camargo Foundation is committed to supporting inclusiveness and a diversity of contemporary reflections and practices, welcoming applicants from around the globe. The Camargo Fellowship offers research-base residencies to applicants from various fields and disciplines. Three main categories are available, as well as several subcategories for artists’ applications.

PURPOSE OF THE RESIDENCY

RESEARCH, EXPERIMENT & CREATE

Applicants must submit a proposal for work they would like to accomplish during their residencies. Proposals may include specific projects to develop or complete (e.g. a book, film, composition, artwork, etc.) or research into a particular topic or issue, in advance of writing or creating a work of art. Research projects should be pertinent to the Fellow’s field. The Camargo Fellowship welcomes both open-ended exploration, or more focused works.

RESIDENTS’ SESSIONS

Residents’ sessions are conceived and held by the fellows all throughout the residency, on Mondays and Wednesdays. Each fellow will have to select one of the proposed dates, to organize their own session with the rest of the group. They encourage fellows to interact, and to address questions linked to their research and practices. These sessions are invitations to discover a resident’s universe and to engage with it collectively.

They can be organized at the foundation or off campus and be of any format (performances, walks, listening, screening or reading sessions, games, discussions).

We encourage residents to avoid classic (PowerPoint) presentations, to rather experiment with more interactive ways of engaging with each others. Attendance to these sessions is mandatory.

ADDITIONAL FUNDING

Fellows may not accept gainful employment that will prevent them from focusing on their project during their residencies at Camargo.
