Grants The Franklin Furnace Fund 2024-25

Franklin Furnace Brooklyn, New York, United States

Opportunity Description

International Deadline: April 1, 2024 – The Franklin Furnace FUND for Performance Art awards grants ranging from $2,000 – $10,000 annually to early career artists of all backgrounds to assist the production of new major performance art works. Artists from all areas of the world are encouraged to apply and selected artists must present their work in New York City. Artists may apply once per year as an individual, and once per year as part of a collaboration.

Franklin Furnace has no curator; each year a new panel of artists reviews all proposals. This peer panel system allows all kinds of artists from all over the world an equal shot at presenting their work. Every year the panel changes, and brings new perspectives of “early career artist” and “performance art.” So if at first you don’t succeed, please try again.

For an overview of the Franklin Furnace FUND and to find out about the components of a well-prepared application, all prospective applicants are highly encouraged to register and attend our online information session. You can attend live, or access a recording on our website.

APPLY ONLINE – No Fee

About:
Franklin Furnace’s mission is to present, preserve, interpret, proselytize and advocate on behalf of avant-garde art, especially forms that may be vulnerable due to institutional neglect, cultural bias, their ephemeral nature, or politically unpopular content. Franklin Furnace is dedicated to serving artists by providing both physical and virtual venues for the presentation of time-based art, including but not limited to artists’ books and periodicals, installation art, performance art, and unforeseen contemporary avant-garde artforms; and to undertake other activities related to these purposes. Franklin Furnace is committed to serving emerging artists; to assuming an aggressive pedagogical stance with regard to the value of avant-garde art to life; and to fostering artists’ zeal to broadcast ideas.
