We are pleased to announce that the Getty Foundation and the Tavolozza Foundation have generously provided funding for the third year of the AllPaper Seminar, a program designed to introduce emerging professionals of diverse backgrounds to the field of works on paper. For the 2024 session, the seminar will focus generally on prints and drawings, and specifically on contemporary practice. Related questions of interpretation, display, and conservation will also be addressed.
The two-part program will bring undergraduates and recent graduates together with established professionals to learn about the stewardship of works on paper. Participants will ideally be located in the southwestern region of the United States and represent different racial, ethnic, and socio-economic communities. Applications are now being accepted for the third term of the program, beginning in January 2024. The deadline to apply is October 30, 2023. Applicants selected to participate will be notified of their acceptance to the 2024 AllPaper Seminar by December 1, 2023.
The curriculum for the 12 selected participants will begin with a series of online meetings followed by an in-person two-day orientation session in Los Angeles on March 14 and 15, 2024. The program culminates in a weeklong residency at the Benton from June 2 to June 8, 2024. This intensive residency will include hands-on sessions treating the material properties of prints and drawings, their interpretation, and collecting practices, and trips to collections and studios in the Los Angeles area. At the end of the program, participants will produce a professional-level project.
All expenses will be paid for participants, and all travel and logistical arrangements will be made by the Benton. Additionally, participants will receive a $1500 honorarium.
