The 2017 call for applications for Etant donnés—the French-American Fund for Contemporary Art—is now open!

Projects taking place between November 2017 and June 2018 will be eligible. Applications must be submitted by August 23, 2017. The applications will be reviewed in September 2017 by Etant donnés' Artistic Committee, comprised of independent American and French professionals specialized in contemporary art.

Étant donnés Contemporary Art aims to strengthen ties between France and the U.S. in the field of contemporary art by fostering active collaboration and encouraging long-lasting partnerships between French visual artists, curators and collectives and American curators and cultural institutions.

The program features three different grant programs:

Grants for artistic projects
Etant donnés seeks primarily to introduce French visual artists whose works have rarely, if ever, been shown in the United States. The fund allocates grants to American nonprofit institutions that organize exhibitions, installations, or research projects featuring French artists.

Curatorial fellowships
The program is dedicated to American curators wishing to conduct and deepen their research in contemporary art in France or seeking to spend time in France for exploratory trips. These grants are intended to expand the opportunities of American curators, to encourage in-depth explorations of French cultural resources, and to provide a forum for the exchange of ideas and knowledge among artists and professionals.

Etant donnés residencies—Comité Professionnel des Galeries d'Art
This new grant will be allocated to one French or France-based visual artist, represented by a gallery member of the Comité professionnel des galeries d’art, seeking to spend 2 to 4 months in the United States, in order to develop a research or a project in partnership with an American organization.
