Fine Arts Post-Graduate program, fall 2014

Deadline for applications: 23 May 2014

The ENSBA offers a one-year, postgraduate program for five international artists who have acquired a Master’s degree (or DNSEP).

It aims at creating the conditions to enact and support a position in the contemporary art field for emerging artists. It stimulates the articulation of practice, research, discourse, critical reflection, and socialisation through individual and collective practices.

Promoting transmission rather than education, the postgraduate program based in the School of Fine Arts, Lyon, invites five young artists from different geographical backgrounds who are already actively engaged in the art practice.

During this year-long program the artists are invited to elaborate on their individual practice and will be given full access to the school’s facilities and studios. The development of individual work will be challenged through constant critical interaction, the creation of collective research and exhibition projects and opportunities to travel and meet with international artists and art practitioners.

At the turning point between the sheltered environment of the school and an exposure to the world, the postgraduate program is a social experience based on openness towards others.

The Post-Graduate Art program, Lyon, 2014–2015
– This fourteenth session will include five young artists (painters, sculptors, video artists, performers, photographers, etc) for a one-year residency.
– During the selection process, the jury will focus on the autonomy of the artist, demonstrable artistic qualities and the potential for exchange and dialogue.

François Piron is an art critic and curator. He is a founding member of the independent exhibition space castillo/corrales in Paris and the publishing house Paraguay Press. Between 2001 and 2006, he co-directed Les Laboratoires d’Aubervilliers, a multidisciplinary art center, and has organized numerous exhibitions, recently at Kunstnernes Hus in Oslo, the City Gallery in Prague, the Palais de Tokyo in Paris and the Museo Nacional Reina Sofia in Madrid.

Material conditions
– The successful candidates will each receive a grant of 4,000 EUR, paid in two installments.
– Collective accommodation is offered to the residents on the site of the art school.

Conditions for admission to the postgraduate course
– Applicants must hold a higher diploma (Master’s degree) from a recognized national or international school of art, architecture, etc.
– A shortlist will be drawn up on the basis of the applications.
– Admission consists of an interview with a jury composed of the school director, the program supervisor, and two international artists and curators.
– Knowledge of French or English is mandatory.

The deadline for reception of applications is 23 May.

Interviews with shortlisted applicants will be held 24 and 25 June.
