In memory of Eva Breuer, one of Australia’s most loved and prolific art dealers who made a signification contribution to Australian art in the 1980s and 90s, The Breuer Foundation has established an annual scholarship to be awarded to a young Australian female artist for the purpose of travel and study in Paris.
The Eva Breuer Travelling Art Scholarship is an award of $25,000. The scholarship recipient is chosen from the winners of the Cité Internationale des Arts studio residencies in Paris, who receive either a two-month tenancy at the Moya Dyring Memorial Studio or three-month tenancy at the Dr Denise Hickey Memorial Studio.
The scholarship is payable in three monthly instalments for the two-month tenancy (Moya Dyring Studio) or four monthly instalments for the three-month tenancy (Dr Denise Hickey Memorial Studio). It can be used to cover the costs of travel, monthly maintenance fee to the Cité authorities and living expenses associated with the residency.
- The winner will be chosen from successful applicants to the Paris studio residency that year.
- Applicants must be a female artist, 35 years or under at the time of application.
- The successful applicant must be available to attend the winner’s announcement at the Art Gallery of NSW on Wednesday 30 September 2020.
