Bogliasco Foundation Arts and Humanities Fellowships – SUSPENDED

Bogliasco Foundation Arts and Humanities Fellowships – SUSPENDED

This Deadline Expired: Wednesday, April 15, 2020

COVID-19 Update

Due to the global COVID-19 outbreak, the Bogliasco Foundation’s board has made the difficult decision to temporarily suspend our Fellowship program in Bogliasco. We continue to monitor the situation daily, and will update our community in the weeks to come via email, social media and on our website. For those who wish to help with the crisis in Italy, we have posted some links below to reliable organizations that would be grateful for your support.

Please stay safe and take good care of yourselves and your families. A special message to our extended network of Fellows: stay in touch and let us know how you are doing!

The Bogliasco Foundation supports the arts and humanities by providing residential fellowships at its study center in Italy’s most vibrant, historic crossroads, where gifted artists and scholars of all cultures come together to connect, create, and disseminate significant new work.

To that end, the foundation is inviting applications for its fellowship program. The program awards one-month fellowships to individuals of all ages and nationalities who have made significant contributions in the arts and humanities. Fellows live and work in bucolic surroundings on the coast near Genoa, Italy, where natural beauty combines with an intimate group setting to encourage inquiry and transformative exchange across all disciplines. 

The foundation awards approximately sixty fellowships per year to individuals doing creative or scholarly work in the following disciplines: archaeology, architecture, classics, dance, film/video, history, landscape architecture, literature, music, philosophy, theater, and visual arts.

Fellowships cover room and board but do not provide a travel or living stipend. Fellows are assigned a private workspace equipped with ample work surfaces, a desktop computer, a printer, and cabled and wireless Internet service (which is also accessible throughout the center). Some of the studios include special amenities: the visual arts studio, for example, includes basic equipment for painting, sculpture, and graphics; the music studio, which is equipped with an upright piano, keyboard, and a recording/playback system; and the 400-square-foot dance studio features a sprung floor with Marley, a sound system, a small work station, and optional 10’ by 7’ high mirrors.

Students currently in a degree-granting program are not eligible to apply.

See the Bogliasco Foundation website for complete program guidelines and application instructions.

Sharing the experiences I have had with race and gender is a catalyst for my work. My experience growing up very protected in a race not completely my own, was not concerning to me as a child. When I was introduced to a mixed race population that was very concerned with labeling and grouping people, the experience was unsettling. From that point, I had to think about race and culture and how they related to my daily performance.

Karen Hunter McLaughlin is a lifelong Philadelphia artist who has worked in traditional 2-D mediums as well as steel wire sculpture. Current work themes are a congruence of large format, multilayer prints creating 2-D inhabitable virtual-vistas, and a collection of smaller prints that focus on human connection, much like the ripple effect of a stone thrown in water.

Mindy Flexer makes magical realist, figurative, oil paintings. She uses observation and invention to explore identity and family relationships, and the way personal history resides within the larger arc of time. Her current work is about our extraordinary historical moment, when climate crisis threatens all life on earth, and climate justice offers the possibility of global transformation to a just and equitable world. Her visual language of a seamless world of people, animals, and place, is the language of the interconnection of all life on earth. Flexer’s paintings speak about climate in a language personal enough for people to hear it. Her goal is to inspire people to action. She hopes to connect people to themselves and each other, so each person can find their place in the mass movement necessary to create a sustainable future. In this way, she sees her paintings aspart of the great web of healing she deeply believes can save our planet.
