Are You Always Chasing The Green?

Once again we find ourselves talking about money. But why not? After all, it is truly the key, the sought after component to make – or break – any art career. If you know where to look, there are sources of funding all around. That does not mean, of course, that you will land every single one. But it also does not mean you shouldn’t try. This is the bread and butter of an art career, the way forward, how one sustains a practice that supports a reasonable standard of living. Read on for a few grants taking applications right now.

CUE Art Foundation is holding its annual open call for emerging and underrepresented artists and curators. In their own words:

Each year, the open call awards three opportunities for solo exhibitions and one opportunity to organize a curatorial group show at CUE. Awardees are each paired with a mentor, an established artist or curator who works with them throughout the process of planning and installing the exhibition.”

For more information and to apply, visit the website. Deadline for submissions is June 30.
