The Vera List Center Fellowships support individuals whose work advances the discourse on art and politics. The appointments provide the opportunity to research and develop a project drawing from the curatorial, academic, and professional resources of the Vera List Center and The New School, and to bring the research and resulting work to the public through the Vera List Center’s interdisciplinary public programs and organizational networks.

For the 2020-2022 cycle, the Center is interested in projects that creatively and rigorously approach the biennial theme, in content and form, making an intellectual and artistic contribution that advances understanding of how protocols enact and materialize in language, networks, and power.

The Vera List Center will appoint a total of three research fellows for the 2020-2022 cycle, including the inaugural Boris Lurie Fellow, the first named artist fellowship at the Vera List Center for Art and Politics. The Boris Lurie Fellowship is reserved for an artist living outside the U.S. with special consideration given to those who have faced political hardship. The Boris Lurie Fellow will have the opportunity to visit the Boris Lurie Art Foundation and Archive in New Jersey to formulate their own understanding of how Lurie’s legacy might continue in contemporary art practices.

Each research fellowship is highly individualized, depending on the project and its intended outcomes. Fellows have access to a wide range of activities throughout The New School and enjoy extensive library privileges. Meetings and informal gatherings with New School faculty, past Fellows and other constituencies are organized regularly and offer opportunities for professional development as well as social exchanges. It is not necessary to spend two years in New York: Non-New York City residents are provided with an additional travel allowance to undertake short-term residencies, to engage with the VLC’s curatorial team and take full advantage of benefits.
