SUPPORTING ETHICS IN THE EXPERIMENTAL/DOCUMENTARY ARTS
The Graduate Arts Fellowship supports the generation and exhibition of ethics-oriented work at the leading edge of documentary practice. Offered to one student entering their second year of Duke’s MFA|EDA program, the fellowship offers resources, mentorship, and opportunities for engagement with the faculty, fellows, staff, and students at the Kenan Institute for Ethics over the course of an academic year.
Responsibilities for the fellowship include curation of an exhibition and associated programming during the spring semester, engagement with undergraduates during the fall and spring semesters, and serving as a judge for Team Kenan’s annual What Is Good Art? visual art competition in late spring.
The Graduate Arts Fellowship comes with a $5,000 stipend (paid in the fall and early spring) that supplements any other funding the student is already receiving. Fellows who produce exhibits of especially high distinction are eligible for the the Graduate Arts Fellow Distinguished Art in Ethics Award, determined at the end of the year.
