ISLAA Writer in Residence | Summer 2023

New York

Deadline 30/04/2023


ISLAA (The Institute for Studies on Latin American Art ) is announcing the call for proposals for its Summer 2023 Writer in Residence program.


Deadline for applications: April 30, 2023.


For the first time since this program’s founding in 2018, ISLAA is issuing an open call for proposals. They invite emerging and established researchers worldwide to apply, including students, faculty, and independent scholars.


The Writer in Residence program offers a first look at newly processed primary sources and provides the opportunity to conduct research on exceptional artists and movements from postwar and contemporary Latin American art.


This summer, selected Writers in Residence will work remotely to explore materials from one of three fully digitized collections from the ISLAA Library and Archives: the Manuel Herreros de Lemos and Mateo Manaure Arilla Collection, a collection of selected artist’s books by Anna Bella Geiger, and the “El Dibujazo” Collection. Residents will produce an essay based on their selected digital collection, in alignment with their own research interests and expertise. Each selected participant will be awarded a $2,000 grant in recognition of these research and writing endeavors.


The application materials required include a research proposal, a CV, and a writing sample. Find out more about residency conditions and submission requirements here.
