  Henry Moore Institute Research Fellowships (2012-2013)

*Call for applications*

The Henry Moore Institute is a world-recognised centre for the study of 
sculpture in the heart of Leeds. An award-winning exhibitions venue, 
research centre, library and sculpture archive, the Institute hosts a 
year-round programme of exhibitions, conferences and lectures, as well 
as developing research and publications, to expand the understanding and 
scholarship of historical and contemporary sculpture.

The Institute is a part of The Henry Moore Foundation, set up by the 
sculptor Henry Moore (1898-1986) in 1977 to encourage appreciation of 
the visual arts, especially sculpture.

Research is central to the activities of the Institute. Through it, we 
aim to encourage research into sculpture both within our walls and 
without, acting as a hub to develop communities of research. Each year 
we offer a number of fellowships, enabling researchers of different 
backgrounds and disciplines to develop their work at the Institute.

The Henry Moore Institute invites applications for the following 
fellowship programmes in 2012-2013:

*Research Fellowships*are intended for artists, scholars and curators, 
working on historic and contemporary sculpture using the Institute's 
library, archive of sculptors' papers and the collection of Leeds Art 
Gallery. Up to four fellowswill be given the opportunity to spend a 
month in Leeds to develop their own research.With access to our 
resources and an on-going dialogue with the Institute staff, fellows are 
free to pursue their own interests in a supportive and stimulating 

*Senior Fellowships*are intended to give established scholars (working 
on any aspect of sculpture) time and space to develop a research project 
free from their usual work commitments. Up to two senior fellowships, 
for periods of between four to six weeks will be offered.

Both fellowships provide accommodation, travel expenses and a per diem. 
The Institute offers the possibility of presenting finished research in 
published form, as a seminar, or as a small exhibition.
