Mordant Family/Australia Council Affiliated Fellowship

The Mordant Family/Australia Council Affiliated Fellowship at the American Academy in Rome (AAR) is made possible through co-investment by the Mordant Family and the Australia Council. Since 2016 an Australian artist has had the opportunity to pursue their work in an inspiring, collaborative, and supportive environment, with accommodation and studio space in the AAR’s historic building in Rome, thanks to the generous support of the Mordant Family.
