Art Matters considers applications by invitation only. Each round we select an anonymous group of internationally recognized artists, curators and other arts leaders to nominate artists to apply. We award grants of $3,000–$10,000 to artists focusing on communication and collaboration across national borders. We fund U.S. artists who are working internationally in all visual media including video, film, digital arts, performance (with a strong visual component), installation, and site-specific work. The work should take place within one year following the award.
Requests may be made for:
• International travel and exploration fellowships.
• Grants for specific international projects.
