The Visiting Artist Fellowship at the Mittal Institute brings four artists from South Asia to the Harvard campus in Cambridge each year, where they have the opportunity to perform research and use Harvard’s vast resources to build on their future art practice in an eight-week fellowship. Using Harvard’s resources, fellows explore critical issues in South Asia through the lens of art and design. In the video above, a few of our recent Fellows talk about why they loved their time at Harvard — and why you should apply for the next round!

The program welcomes applications from mid-career visual artists in South Asia to come to Harvard University to participate in interdisciplinary discourse with students and faculty on global issues relevant to South Asia.

Applications for the Fall 2020 and Spring 2021 Visiting Artist Fellowship semesters open on Monday, April 13, 2020. The deadline to apply for the both semesters of the fellowship is Monday, May 11, 2020. For more information, click the button below.
