Program Overview

The Banff International Curatorial Institute (BICI) Fellowship 
supports established curators, arts writers, cultural critics, and 
researchers in focusing deeply on the continued development of their 
work. The program allows for self-directed research over an extended 
period of 12 weeks within the creative and intellectually stimulating 
environment of Visual Arts. Participants are selected by an 
international jury for this unique, fully-scholarshipped program.

In addition to focusing on their own practice, participants 
will engage with each other as well as artists-in-residence in Visual 
Arts programs-meet with them to grow their networks and expand their 
research, visit studios or hold office hours, join reading groups, 
share knowledge through presenting research in progress, as well as 
engage with Banff Centre's curatorial and artistic staff. The BICI 
Fellowship coincides with
