Fieldwork: Marfa is the joint project of two leading European art academies Les Beaux-Arts Nantes and HEAD – Genève (Geneva University of Art and Design). This inter­national researcher-in-residence program is dedicated to the practice of art in public space, critical approaches to landscape and artistic projects based on field investigation methodologies.

Located in Marfa, Texas, USA, this unique platform is intended for emerging artists and researchers whose projects require immersion into the specific environment of Marfa town and Texas territory, necessitating movement through geography as well as time and space for the purposes of specific research work.

The residency time period is of two months and comes with a research grant of 2000 USD, enabling the applicants to produce theoretical and/or practical work using their own methodologies, with support from a number of pro­fess­ional partners, specialized stakeholders and educational institutions.

Residents are selected on the basis of a research project in direct relation­ship with the context, through all its material, historical as well as political dimensions. The thematic focus for 2014 is: 'borders'. On 6 candidates chosen, 3 are alumni from HEAD Genève and/or les Beaux-Arts de Nantes.
