Our Annual Artist Commission Fellowship is mostly selected among the artists that members of the ARAK Collection Curatorial Advisory Committee manage to visit at their studios in their home countries. Annually the Committee makes several research and fact finding trips to Sub-Saharan Africa to encounter artists in their production context and exchange ideas about ways their artwork can complement the current ARAK Collection outlook and catalogue.
If you are an artist with a working studio, you can send us your contact and address of your art studio so we can add it to our Artists Studio Map and Database at ARAK Collection. Next time we are at your country or city, we might request a studio visit to learn more about you and your work.
We also invite artists that are working in new and innovative artworks to submit applications for our annual Artist Commission, if you need funds for production of a specific artwork series or artwork and need support, our fund for Artist Commission can support you some way towards developing and producing your work.
The final objective is as the program clearly outlines to add an artwork to our ARAK Collection through a direct commission or support to artwork or series the artist needs funding for.
