CFP: Terra Foundation Convening Grants

Recognizing current and historical inequities in the presentations and understandings of American art history, the Terra Foundation encourages convenings that address these imbalances and exclusions at institutions worldwide. Grant funding is available for programs that foster exchange and collaboration, such as workshops, symposia, and colloquia.

Programs should advance innovative and experimental research and professional practice in American art and address critical issues facing the field. We also welcome requests for convenings intended to inform projects in their early stages, which will benefit from the learning and practice that can be developed through dialogue.

This program is open to organizations within and outside of the United States. Convenings held in person and/or online are eligible for support.

I am an art historian specializing in early twentieth century American art with particular focus on the history of photography, race and representation, and transatlantic modernist networks. I earned my PhD at Yale University in the History of Art Department. Besides my leadership role as the Founding Co-Director of the Association for Critical Race Art History (ACRAH), I am recognized for my expertise on African American Art, particularly African American Photography, and as a seasoned consultant for exhibitions, museum collections, and symposia/lectures planning.
