Recognizing current and historical inequities in the presentations and understandings of American art history, the Terra Foundation encourages temporary exhibitions that address these imbalances and exclusions.
To expand histories of American art, we seek projects that reflect inclusive and equitable research and curatorial practices; generate new scholarship and interpretive frameworks; employ critical methodologies and innovative models; and/or engage diverse partners and audiences.
Grants will offset planning and/or implementation costs for:
- Temporary exhibitions primarily comprising artworks that are not part of the institution’s permanent collection
- Research and planning for temporary exhibitions (e.g., convenings, travel, research fellows or assistants, advisory groups)
Grant support through this program is offered once yearly, with a board vote in October of each year.
