The Open Society Documentary Photography Project is soliciting submissions for a new joint exhibition and fellowship opportunity focused on the topic of migration.
Selected projects will be featured in the next installment of their ongoing Moving Walls exhibition series, opening in September 2018 at the Open Society Foundations—New York.
The Open Society Foundation is inviting proposals about the work that engages with topics of migration, identity, belonging, and resilience from a variety of perspectives. Proposals are encourage applicants to interpret these themes broadly.
Selected artists will also receive a fellowship of $30,000–$60,000 (INR 19 lac to 38 lac) to support ongoing or future work on the theme of migration.
- The foundation is seeking photographers, artists, and media makers who bring expertise and new insight to an issue; who demonstrate a high level of artistic ability or excellence; and who have the skills, passion, commitment, and capacity to realize the proposed grant project.
- Applicants must demonstrate an ongoing commitment to themes relevant to migration through their past and ongoing work. In the application, they ask for examples of two past or current projects.
- Projects considered for exhibition may be for works from a larger, ongoing project, but the Moving Walls exhibit will be curated from content that already exists (funds will not be provided to create new projects specifically for the exhibition).
- Projects considered for the fellowship may be for continuing an ongoing body of work, or creating a new body of work related to the broader themes of the exhibit.
