2024 Misk Art Grant Applications Due by March 15th

Time is running out for artists to apply to the 2024 Misk Art Grant, a prestigious opportunity for artists to engage with the regional art scene by creating works around a specific theme.

The theme of this year’s Misk Art Grant is Media and Technology, inviting artists to explore how digital technology has reconfigured the human experience for both better and worse. Artists are encouraged to expand beyond traditional gallery spaces, creating work that could include video, virtual reality, sculpture, and installations. The selected works will illustrate the complicated dynamics between technological progress and society as a whole. 

This grant provides funding opportunities for emerging and mid-career Saudi and Arab artists while providing recipients with technical and conceptual advice from mentors in one-on-one sessions. This opportunity is perfect for visual artists from the Middle East and North Africa who have previously participated in solo or group exhibitions, residencies, or have shown their work in international galleries. March 15th is the last day to submit applications to this grant.

Based in Riyadh, the Misk Art Institute is a non-profit cultural organization that empowers local artists, with the goal of making art accessible to all.
