Application Guidelines and Criteria:
The residency is designed for candidates in their early or mid-career who have earned a measure of professional recognition – in the form of exhibitions, reviews, works included in collections, awards, etc. – but who are still growing and developing their body of work.
Spoken English is strongly preferred in most international residency programs; in addition, individual residency programs may have their own language requirements.
Davidoff Art Residency positions are open to all eligible candidates, without preference or restriction as to nationality gender, political affiliation, sexual orientation, or religious or ideological belief.
Writers and curators specializing in the visual art of the Caribbean, or who are involved in projects (books, exhibitions, lecture series, documentaries, etc.) featuring Dominican and/or Caribbean art and artists, are eligible to apply to some participating programs.
Candidates for the program must complete and submit all required application materials and agree to an interview with a Davidoff Art Initiative representative. Once selected, participants must comply with all contractual requirements and agree to stay in the residency location for the entire duration of the residency.
Each candidate is solely responsible for obtaining proper travel authorization. Davidoff will provide any required letters and necessary documentation of the program in these cases, and will cover any applicable visa processing fees.
