The Henry Moore Institute is a world-recognised centre for the study of sculpture. We host a year-round programme of exhibitions, conferences and lectures, as well as developing research and publications, to expand the understanding and scholarship of sculpture. Each year we offer a number of Fellowships to enable artists and researchers to develop their work.

Visiting Research Fellowships are intended for academics and curators working on historic and contemporary sculpture who can make particular use of the Institute's resources: our Research Library, Archive of Sculptors' Papers and the Leeds Sculpture Collections.

Artist Research Fellowships are intended for artists to develop their practice through research, using the Institute’s resources. The fellowships will support a range of visual arts practices and outcomes generated through research into sculpture and its histories.

Research Fellows will be given the opportunity to spend a month in Leeds. In addition we will support up to two six-week Senior Fellowships, which are intended to give established scholars time and space to develop a research project free from usual work commitments.

Fellowships include accommodation, travel expenses and a per diem.

To apply for either fellowship please forward a letter of application, a 750-word research proposal, that also indicates how you will use our resources, and a CV by Monday, January 27, 2019 to Kirstie Gregory, [email protected]
