FORART grants are given annually to projects supporting academic and art critical research in international contemporary art. The Foundation will give grants within the limits of an annual budget to projects it deems important, and reserves the right to accept or reject any applications. FORART does not give publication support or sponsor exhibitions or other art projects, travels or lectures.
