Henry Moore Institute Research Fellowships 2012/2013

Call for Applications

The Henry Moore Institute, a research centre for the study of sculpture, offers a number of fellowships, enabling researchers of different backgrounds and disciplines to develop their work at the Institute. The Institute situated in Leeds, United Kingdom, hosts a year-round programme of exhibitions, conferences and lectures and develops research and publications, to expand the understanding of historical and contemporary sculpture. The Henry Moore Institute, which is part of Henry Moore Foundation invites applications for the following fellowship programmes in 20122013:

  • Research Fellowships - intended for artists, scholars and curators, working on historic and contemporary sculpture using the Institute's library, archive of sculptors' papers and the collection of the Leeds Art Gallery. Up to four fellows will be given the opportunity to spend a month in Leeds to develop their own research.
  • Senior Fellowships - intended to give established scholars (working on any aspect of sculpture) time and space to develop a research project free from their usual work commitments. Two senior fellowships, for periods of between four and six weeks will be offered.

Both fellowships provide accommodation, travel expenses and a per diem. The Institute offers the possibility of presenting the finished research in published form, as a seminar, or as a small exhibition. Interested candidates are invited to submit their applications by 9 January 2012.
