ARTES welcomes Gabriele Finaldi, curator of Ribera: Master of Drawing at the Museo Nacional del Prado, Madrid (22 November 2016 – 19 February 2017), in conversation with Edward Payne, curator of the exhibition’s second incarnation Between Heaven and Hell: The Drawings of Jusepe de Ribera at the Meadows Museum, Dallas (12 March – 11 June 2017). They will be discussing the genesis of the exhibition which celebrates the publication of the first complete catalogue raisonné of Ribera’s drawings. The event will take place in the stunning new Colnaghi gallery in Bury Street, followed by wine and jamón provided by Spanish restaurateurs Brindisa.
ARTES would like to thank the Instituto Cervantes and its Director, Julio Crespo Maclennan for their support with this event.
This event is open to ARTES members only. RSVP to Alice@colnaghi.com
Thanks to the generous support of art dealers Coll & Cortés, ARTES offers travel scholarships for BA and postgraduate students at UK universities who are working on any aspect of Spanish, Portuguese or Latin American visual culture before 1800.
Final year undergraduates and postgraduate students registered for a full or part-time degree course at a UK university may apply for up to £600 towards the costs of travel to Spain, Portugal or Latin America for research purposes (which may include field work, attendance at a conference, or other recognised forms of research). Reports by those previously awarded travel scholarships are available here.
The deadline for these awards is 31st January 2019.
Scholarship application guidelines.
- Applications should be made in English as a single MS Word or PDF file and sent to firstname.lastname@example.org . Applicants are requested to include ‘Travel Scholarship’ in the email subject, but should not expect acknowledgement of receipt.
- All applications should include: a) project title, b) a max 100-word project summary, c) a max 600-word explanation of the research to be conducted (including explanation of the necessity of travel); d) a short breakdown of how the money will be spent, together with details of any other funding received; e) an academic CV. Applicants should ensure that an academic advisor sends a reference to the same email address by the 31st January deadline: this may be in English, Spanish or Portuguese. Applications without a reference will not be considered.
- Candidates may apply for any other scholarship or award offered by ARTES, but are unlikely to be successful in more than one category in any one year.
- Application is open to any student or scholar who can demonstrate compliance with the criteria set out above, other than employees of Coll & Cortés, committee members of ARTES, or their immediate families. Scholarships are not awarded to students who have not yet begun their programme of study, are valid for one year only, and are not renewable. Applications may be submitted for travel conducted in the 12 months prior to the submission deadline, though funding for such trips is likely to be considered less urgent than for forthcoming trips that would not be possible without funding.
- Applications will be assessed according to the following criteria: Originality of research, significance of research, feasibility of successful completion, academic rigour (command of the field, spelling, fluency etc), potential of the applicant (an assessment of the strength of the CV, taking into account the student’s current status), financial need, value for money, strength of reference, necessity of travel.
- Successful scholarship winners are normally informed by 1st March, and are invited to attend a presentation in London in July (exceptions may be made if the costs of attendance at this event are prohibitive). They are required to write a 600-word report on their funded research project, to be sent to email@example.com within nine months of receipt of the scholarship.
- Any publications arising from research supported by these scholarships should include acknowledgement of ARTES.
- The scholarships come with no institutional affiliation, and ARTES and Coll & Cortés cannot take responsibility for the support or welfare of scholarship holders.
- The decision of the Scholarship Committee shall be final. The Committee reserves the right to make no awards in cases where it deems that applications are not of satisfactory quality. Coll & Cortés and ARTES accept no legal responsibility to any applicant or third party arising from this notice, or the award or otherwise of a scholarship. The Scholarship Committee will not enter into correspondence with unsuccessful applicants or their academic advisors regarding its decisions.
