The Georgia Fee Artist/Writer Residency has been established in memory of ArtSlant’s Founder who passed away December 8, 2012. Georgia was dedicated to supporting and investing in young artists and writers, and she had a deep connection with the city of Paris. This residency, which offers artists and writers the opportunity to create work in Paris, has been created in Georgia’s memory.
The goal of the Georgia Fee Artist | Writer Residency in Paris is to support and invest in emerging artists and arts writers, to provide an opportunity for them to advance their work and engage with the cultural landscape of Paris, to encourage experimentation, and to increase exposure of their work to an international audience.
The Residency is open to visual artists of all mediums, art writers, and critics, 24 years or older. Recent graduates are especially encouraged to apply. The selection will be made based on the merit of past work and the potential for future success, the ability to independently develop new work, and the proposed project’s relevance to the city of Paris.
Recipients will be required to maintain a blog, which will be posted on ArtSlant.
The Georgia Fee Artist | Writer Residency in Paris provides the recipient with lodging for 2 months, travel to and from Paris, and a stipend to be used for studio space, materials, and other costs.
