Art Matters considers applications by invitation only. Each round we select an anonymous group of internationally recognized artists, curators and other arts leaders to nominate artists to apply. We award grants of $3,000–$10,000 to U.S. artists for projects that are socially engaged with a focus on local, national and/or global concerns. We fund individuals, collectives and collaborative teams working all visual media including experimental performance, and film.
Requests may be made for:
- Travel or research (either within the US or abroad)
- Materials, production and presentation expenses
Art Matters is particularly interested in subversive or provocative content, and artistic practice that expands definitions of a traditional medium.
