Call for Artists
Apply by October 1, 2021
Following the success of our inaugural virtual exhibit, The Zionist Phantom, the Schusterman Center for Israel Studies at Brandeis University invites artists to apply for a solo virtual exhibition to be held in spring 2022. Preference will be given to artists whose work speaks to the diversity of Israel’s population. The selected artist is awarded a $2,500 exhibition stipend to produce two virtual programs during the exhibition, and up to $1,200 to cover related costs.
Artists must be residents of Israel who have not previously had a solo exhibition of their work in the U.S. Furthermore, their work must speak to the mission of the Center, which is dedicated to promoting exemplary teaching and scholarship concerning Israeli history, politics, culture, and society. There will be no physical exhibition or catalogue.
